Plugin Orchestration for an API Gateway
2022-05-15, 17:40–17:45, Main Room

The role of an API gateway in building large-scale, cloud-native Microservices APIs is sometimes important. It provides rich traffic management features such as load balancing, dynamic upstream, canary release, circuit breaking, authentication, observability, and more. An API gateway will introduce these concerns, allowing your Microservices to focus on the business task at hand. A plugin is a heart mechanism in API Gateway by using it, we can create high-performance systems under tight deadlines. In this talk, we will describe how Apache APISIX implemented plugin orchestration. Plugin orchestration is a form of low code that can help enterprises reduce usage costs and increase operation and maintenance efficiency. With the plugin orchestration capability in the low-code API gateway Apache APISIX, we can easily orchestrate 50+ plugins in a “drag-and-drop” way on the UI dashboard.
