webMethods.io API v10.15 Release Announcement

Today, Software AG is excited to announce the release of webMethods.io API v10.15.

API Gateway

Some of the highlights of this release include:

  1. Enhanced Monitoring – The following API-level Prometheus metrics have been introduced for measuring the availability of the deployed APIs:
    • Error Rates (e.g., API Transaction error rate, Backend API errors)
    • Performance Latency (e.g., Performance per API - API Gateway vs. Backend)
  2. Bulkhead pattern support - Restricting the number of concurrent API requests processed for a more robust and fault tolerant API deployment.
  3. Runtime analytics – Runtime analytics can now be stored in a separate ElasticSearch instance and analyzed via the pre-defined dashboards. This enhancement helps implementing the varying Recovery Time Objective (RTO), Recovery Point Objective (RPO) requirements for the disaster recovery scenario.
  4. LDAP V3 - API Gateway now supports LDAP version 3 for the user management LDAP integration.
  5. TLS 1.3 – API Gateway now supports TLS version 1.3 for securing the inbound and outbound connections that use JSSE.
  6. Documentation improvements – Deployment and user guides are now improved to provide a better user experience.
  7. Better Upgrades – Improved seamless upgrade experience for the SaaS and the on-premise customers.
  8. Tech Stack upgrade – The technical components involved in the runtime are upgraded. Couple of examples: Elastic stack (Elasticsearch, Filebeat, and Kibana) is upgraded to version 8.2.3. API Gateway compile-time is now upgraded to Java 11.

Developer Portal

Some of the highlights of this release include:

  1. Support for custom assets - Developer Portal can now host assets other than APIs. Users can define the type of asset and additional fields related to the asset, and create a gallery to list instances of the asset.
  2. Zero downtime upgrades - Developer Portal can now be updated with zero downtime for both major and minor releases.
  3. State management support for APIs and packages - API and package visibility can now be controlled with predefined (draft, live, retired) or custom lifecycle states.
  4. Ability to anonymize user data - To comply with GDPR and other data protection laws and requirements, Developer Portal admins can now anonymize user attributes manually or automatically after user deletion.
  5. Free Forever Edition - Users can now try the Developer Portal for free with limited capability indefinitely.
  6. SOAP API Try-out Enhancements - The Try-Out capability in the Developer Portal has been enhanced for SOAP APIs. Users can now specify custom SOAP headers, SAML assertion, and Nonce, Created time, Password Type options for testing SOAP APIs protected with Web Service Security.
  7. Customization enhancement - The left navigation bar in the customization screen is now fixed to improve the usability of the drawing board.
  8. GitHub enablement - Articles, samples, themes, and web components can be found in the Developer Portal GitHub page https://github.com/SoftwareAG/webmethods-developer-portal.
