This course teaches you how to create, publish, and secure APIs with IBM API Connect V2018.
Course Code: WD514G
Brand: Integration & Development
Skill Level: Intermediate
This course is designed for API developers: software developers who define and implement API operations.
Before taking this course, you should successfully complete course VY102G, Developing REST APIs with Node.js for IBM Bluemix (no longer available).
This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course Create, Secure, and Publish APIs with IBM API Connect v2018 (ZD514G). This option does not require any travel.
This course teaches you how to create, publish, and secure APIs with IBM API Connect V2018. You build Node.js API applications with the LoopBack framework. You define API interfaces according to the OpenAPI specification. You assemble message processing policies and define client authorization schemes, such as OAuth 2.0, in the API definition. You publish APIs and make them available on a secure gateway and on the Developer Portal.
