API-as-a-Product is an emerging concept in the software development sphere. Speed in API development and delivery is becoming increasingly important. Open API 3 enables faster and collaborative API development and its custom extensions can be leveraged to augment API contracts with additional functionality. Here at Intuit we built a system that uses Open API spec, Istio Service Mesh and other extensions to dynamically generate the runtime and enable zero overhead routing for the orchestration APIs. Istio VirtualService is used to create the routing layer with zero overhead to enable faster API delivery. This zero overhead routing supports API patterns like aggregation, transformation and proxy and can be used uniformly across both north-south (via API Gateway on Service Mesh) and east-west traffic. Such an API orchestration runtime and routing will allow you to create and present new and elegant APIs on top of existing APIs while adhering to industry best practices. Come and learn how Intuit’s API Management Platform team built a low code / no code zero overhead routing for orchestration APIs using OpenAPI3 and Istio.
