Our normal use case for API Manager is to create pre-configured store users. The administrator who creates those users then sends them their credentials and secure links. We are running API Manager on a Tomcat server. Currently, I am the main person who works with API Manager, because it requires a proper understanding of the APIs.

We're currently evaluating WSO2 API Manager and Kong for development environments and not production environments. We're currently using Apigee and AWS API Database for the production environments.

I work as a software engineer on the WSO2 API management and WSO2 identity and access server, using version 2.6. At my company, Jio India, I have been one of the main people driving adoption of WSO2. In the beginning, we used WSO2 on virtual machines to handle the API and IAM requirements for more than 40 applications. Now we are currently in the process of migrating to WSO2 version 3 with Kubernetes as our orchestration system.

The principal things we use WSO2 API Manager for are to convert SOAP to Rest services, add security, and to provide more function for the administrators and to the developers. These are the main items. We now work with two versions which are in a test environment. We are using version 3.0 and version 3.2. It's very possible that the version that we will use in production will be 3.2. We can use WSO2 API Manager at IaaS and PaaS enviroments.

We use it along with IdentityServer, as our main API management tool for API exposure to the internet. It's not for internal usage, it's for external use. We have two main roles regarding WSO2 API Manager. There are the admins, who publish guides and user updates, etc — we employ around four people who perform this role. In terms of users, we have around five to six million users going through it on a monthly basis.

One of the main use cases for our organization is that we can use it as a digital integration hub. You can also use it as a base for a marketplace or open banking. We are using it for the enablement of a digital service or digital integration hub. We are helping small customers to digitalize their services. We select the best of these services and solutions and trying to deploy them in our platform and expose them to several different clients.

We use API Manager to publish our microservice for the public. We also use it because of its integrated functionality. We are researching many kinds of functions with WSO2, not only WSO2 management.

Our primary use for this solution is to manage API, which is important to our business model and design of what we do as consultants. I found WSO2 (Web Services Oxygen Tank) was a platform that I could easily work on. All the building practices have to do with API, so when I needed a platform that could manage our API with flexibility, this was our best opportunity. It also leaves room for growth as a solution.

If you are using open-source, it's not expensive. If you choose to upgrade to get enterprise support, then you need a subscription and it has a cost. I am not using the enterprise support and I don't have a subscription. Therefore, I'm not technically paying for the product at all.

We have evaluated WS02, APIGEE, MuleSoft in the past and based on our selection criteria all three scored pretty close with APIGEE with overall high score with a very small difference. However, based on the key driver each one has an advantage such as WS02 on licensing, APIGEE on performance throughput and MuleSoft on robust integration platform. For more information please reach out to me at

I think the main difference is that WSO2 is open source and you can free download to use it in your on premises platform. But if you are willing to pay for a fully developed product, Mulesoft will provide better support in your full development of API cycle. You may consider their local support for further evaluation. I think the level of support offered by the product vendor is a key consideration for your choice.
