API Management versions 7.5.X and 7.6.X have reached end of support in November 2020.
Check out the latest version of the documentation.


The API Manager REST APIs enable you to perform create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) operations on API Manager data. For example, this includes configured APIs, users, organizations, applications, quotas, metrics, alerts and events related to API Manager.

The API Manager REST APIs are available from the following locations:

  • INSTALL_DIR/apigateway/samples/swagger
  • Product APIs page on the Axway Documentation portal
  • Note   When viewing REST APIs on the Axway Documentation portal, the consumes field is not displayed if you are using formData type parameters in an API, due to limitations in the Swagger UI version.
