webMethods API Management

Everything you need for API innovation

webMethods Solves Your Problems

Keeping APIs & Data Safe

Protect APIs, data and microservices with authentication and access control. Set thresholds and limits to control API usage. Enforce security, traffic management, monitoring and SLA management policies.

What you can do with webMethods

Build APIs In One Click

  • Easily create APIs via an intuitive UI
  • Don’t define the API or define the structure—just identify it with one click and webMethods does it for you
  • Count on top-notch API support: REST, SOAP, GraphQL, OData, WebSocket and JSON™ API
  • Make the same underlying services available to new applications or APIs over a different protocol or security standard—without costly recoding

Key Benefits

Keep APIs secure

Use policy-driven security to uniformly secure and monitor access to back-end services from apps using your APIs. Support transport and message-layer security, including authentication, authorization, digital encryption and digital signatures. Use DMZ-strength security between consumer apps using your APIs and your internal servers via a powerful “reverse invoke” technology that removes the need to open firewall ports.

Do power analysis

Make sense of the complex interdependencies of APIs on various services and applications using an interactive graphical view of APIs and their relationships. Visualize the effects of changes beforehand to avoid undesired issues and complications. Customize your view to restrict the set of APIs and associations shown to zero-in on the details that interest you the most. On interactive dashboards, see details on gateway events, the popularity of APIs, and how APIs are being used to help identify ways to improve the user experience and increase API adoption.

Choose how to deploy

Deploy webMethods behind the firewall, in the DMZ, in a private cloud or a public cloud—your choice!

Save time with built-in workflows

Use an approval process workflow to manage API access requests. Access tokens are provisioned automatically to the webMethods gateway. Use an onboarding workflow to sign up developers.

Reduce latency

Store large amounts of transactional data in-memory to improve performance, reduce latency for data access, and scale your APIs for any volume.

Count on flexibility

Thanks to extensive support for mapping and transformation, your API consumers have flexibility in the protocols, message formats and transports they use.

Manage policies

Design and configure policies to be applied to your APIs at runtime. A given policy can even be applied to multiple APIs at the same time and be dynamically scoped by naming patterns, categorization or organization, which saves time when making changes. You can use pre-loaded policies, including metadata validation, approval workflow and permission provisioning, or define custom policies.

Manage models & versions

Ensure standards and practices are followed as every API moves through its lifecycle by defining permissible transitions between states. With built-in versioning capabilities, you can define and track API versions. Multiple versions can co-exist, and older versions can be retired over time.


With APIs, Hope Is Not A Strategy | Software AG Government Solutions

Here’s Why API Integrations Are Necessary for Public Safety

Are you agile? I’m not asking if you can perform a back-bend without ending up in hospital. What I want to know is, can your company quickly scale up to a digital environment and add anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 new users a day? Many organizations cannot, and we are seeing them fall by the…

API management solutions for government agencies

Constituents now expect governments to deliver streamlined, intuitive, user-friendly digital services. Accomplishing this requires agencies to invest in technology innovation, which has led many organizations to focus their strategy on APIs. But as agencies implement an API-first development approach, they’ll need to use API management more strategically. Here are three reasons why — and how…
