Configuring a Distributed API-M Deployment with Traffic Manager Separated from the Control Plane

The WSO2 API-M server can be deployed as an all-in-one deployment or as a distributed deployment. In the distributed setup, the API-M server profiles are deployed as separate API-M nodes.

Given below are the API-M nodes you can have in a distributed deployment.

Tip

To enable high availability, you need a minimum of two nodes running each profile.

API-M Node (Profile) Description
Gateway Worker Node API-M nodes running the Gateway profile.
Control Plane Node API-M nodes running the Control Plane profile. The Control Plane includes the Traffic Manager, Key Manager, Publisher, and Developer Portal components.
Traffic Manager Node (Optional) If required you can configure a separate API-M node to run the Traffic Manager component. That is, the Control Plane nodes run the Key Manager, Publisher, and Developer Portal, while the Traffic Manager runs on a separate node.

Step 1 - Install WSO2 API-M

To install and set up the API-M servers:

  1. Download the WSO2 API Manager.
  2. Create copies of the API-M distribution for the individual profiles.

Step 2 - Install and configure the databases

You can create the required databases for the API-M deployment in a separate server and point to the databases from the respective nodes.

For information, see Installing and Configuring the Databases.

Step 3 - Configure your deployment with production hardening

Ensure that you have taken into account the respective security hardening factors (e.g., changing and encrypting the default passwords, configuring JVM security, etc.) before deploying WSO2 API-M.

For more information, see Production Deployment Guidelines.

Step 4 - Create and import SSL certificates

Create an SSL certificate for each of the WSO2 API-M nodes and import them to the keystore and the truststore. This ensures that hostname mismatch issues in the certificates will not occur.

Note

The same primary keystore should be used for all API Manager instances to decrypt the registry resources. For more information, see Configuring the Primary Keystore.

For more information, see Creating SSL Certificates.

Step 5 - Configure API-M Analytics

API Manager Analytics is delivered via the API Manager Analytics cloud solution. You need to configure the API Manager Gateway to publish analytics data to the cloud.

See the instructions on configuring the API Gateway with the cloud-based analytics solution.

Step 6 - Configure and start the profiles

Let's configure the API-M nodes in the deployment.

Configure the Gateway nodes

Configure the Gateway to communicate with the Control Plane and the Traffic Manager nodes.

Follow the instructions given below to configure the Gateway node so that it can communicate with the Control Plane node:

  1. Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file of the Gateway node.

  2. Add the following configurations to the deployment.toml file.

  3. Connecting the Gateway to the Control Plane node:

    # Key Manager configuration
    [apim.key_manager]
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-LB-host]/services/"
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    
    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-LB-host]/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://control-plane-1-host:5672", "tcp://control-plane-2-host:5672"]
    
    # Key Manager configuration
    [apim.key_manager]
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-host]:${mgt.transport.https.port}/services/"
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    
    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-host]:${mgt.transport.https.port}/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://control-plane-host:5672"]

    Info

    Event hub configuration is used to retrieve Gateway artifacts. Using event_listening_endpoints, the Gateway will create a JMS connection with the event hub that is then used to subscribe for API/Application/Subscription and Key Manager operations-related events. The service_url points to the internal API that resides in the event hub that is used to pull artifacts and information from the database.

    • Connecting the Gateway to the Traffic Manager node:
    [apim.throttling]
    throttle_decision_endpoints = ["tcp://traffic-manager-1-host:5672", "tcp://Traffic-Manager-2-host:5672"]
    
    [[apim.throttling.url_group]]
    traffic_manager_urls = ["tcp://traffic-manager-1-host:9611"]
    traffic_manager_auth_urls = ["ssl://traffic-manager-1-host:9711"]
    
    [[apim.throttling.url_group]]
    traffic_manager_urls = ["tcp://traffic-manager-2-host:9611"]
    traffic_manager_auth_urls = ["ssl://traffic-manager-2-host:9711"]
    
    [apim.throttling]
    throttle_decision_endpoints = ["tcp://traffic-manager-host:5672"]
    
    [[apim.throttling.url_group]]
    traffic_manager_urls = ["tcp://traffic-manager-host:9611"]
    traffic_manager_auth_urls = ["ssl://traffic-manager-host:9711"]

    Info

    Rate limiting configurations are used by the Gateway to connect with the Traffic Manager. The Gateway will publish Gateway invocation-related events to the TM using the apim.throttling.url_group. Traffic Managers will receive these events and rate limiting decisions will be published to the Gateway. To receive these rate limiting decisions, the Gateway has to create a JMS connection using throttle_decision_endpoints and listen.

  4. Add the following configurations to the deployment.toml file to configure the Gateway environment. Change the gateway_labels property based on your Gateway environment.

    [apim.sync_runtime_artifacts.gateway]
    gateway_labels =["Default"]

    Info

    Once an API is deployed/undeployed, the Control Plane will send a deploy/undeploy event to the Gateways. Using this configuration, the Gateway will filter out its relevant deploy/undeploy events and retrieve the artifacts.

  5. Enable JSON Web Token (JWT) if required. For instructions, see Generating JSON Web Token.

  6. Add the public certificate of the private key (that is used for signing the tokens) to the truststore under the "gateway_certificate_alias" alias. For instructions, see Create and import SSL certificates.

    Note

    This is not applicable if you use the default certificates, which are the certificates that are shipped with the product itself.

  7. Follow the steps given below to configure High Availability (HA) for the API-M Gateway:

    1. Create a copy of the API-M Gateway node that you just configured. This is the second node of the API-M Gateway cluster.

    2. Configure a load balancer fronting the two Gateway nodes in your deployment. For instructions, see Configuring the Proxy Server and the Load Balancer.

      Note

      To keep custom runtime artifacts deployed in the Gateway, add the following configuration in the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file of the Gateway nodes.

      [apim.sync_runtime_artifacts.gateway.skip_list]
      apis = ["api1.xml","api2.xml"]
      endpoints = ["endpoint1.xml"]
      sequences = ["post_with_nobody.xml"]
      local_entries = ["file.xml"]
      
    3. Open the deployment.toml files of each Gateway node and add the cluster hostname. For example, if the hostname is gw.wso2.com the configuration will be:

      [server]
      hostname = "gw.wso2.com"
      
    4. Specify the following incoming connection configurations in the deployment.toml files of both nodes.

      [transport.http]
      properties.port = 9763
      properties.proxyPort = 80
      
      [transport.https]
      properties.port = 9443
      properties.proxyPort = 443
      
    5. Open the server's /etc/hosts file and map the hostnames to IPs.

      Format:

      <GATEWAY-IP> gw.wso2.com

      Example:

      xxx.xxx.xxx.xx4 gw.wso2.com

Sample configuration for the Gateway

[server]
hostname = "gw.wso2.com"
node_ip = "127.0.0.1"

Configure the Control Plane nodes

Follow the steps given below to configure the Control Plane nodes to communicate with the Gateway.

  1. Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file of the Control Plane node.

  2. Add the following configurations to the deployment.toml file.

    Connecting the Control Plane to the Gateway node:

    [[apim.gateway.environment]]
    name = "Default"
    type = "hybrid"
    display_in_api_console = true
    description = "This is a hybrid gateway that handles both production and sandbox token traffic."
    show_as_token_endpoint_url = true
    service_url = "https://[api-gateway-LB-host]/services/"
    ws_endpoint = "ws://[api-gateway-LB-host-or-ip]:9099"
    wss_endpoint = "wss://[api-gateway-LB-host-or-ip]:8099"
    http_endpoint = "http://[api-gateway-LB-host]"
    https_endpoint = "https://[api-gateway-LB-host]"
    
    [[apim.gateway.environment]]
    name = "Default"
    type = "hybrid"
    display_in_api_console = true
    description = "This is a hybrid gateway that handles both production and sandbox token traffic."
    show_as_token_endpoint_url = true
    service_url = "https://[api-gateway-host]:9443/services/"
    ws_endpoint = "ws://[api-gateway-host]:9099"
    wss_endpoint = "wss://[api-gateway-host]:8099"
    http_endpoint = "http://[api-gateway-host]:${http.nio.port}"
    https_endpoint = "https://[api-gateway-host]:${https.nio.port}"
    

    Info

    This configuration is used for deploying APIs to the Gateway and for connecting the Developer Portal component to the Gateway if the Gateway is shared across tenants. If the Gateway is not used in multiple tenants, you can create a Gateway Environment using the Admin Portal.

    Note that in the above configurations, the service_url points to the 9443 port of the Gateway node, while http_endpoint and https_endpoint points to the http and https nio ports (8280 and 8243).

    Add Event Hub Configurations:

    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username= "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password= "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://localhost:${mgt.transport.https.port}/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://localhost:5672"]
    event_duplicate_url = ["tcp://apim-cp-2:5672"]
    
    [[apim.event_hub.publish.url_group]]
    urls = ["tcp://control-plane-1-host:9611"]
    auth_urls = ["ssl://control-plane-1-host:9711"]
    
    [[apim.event_hub.publish.url_group]]
    urls = ["tcp://control-plane-2-host:9611"]
    auth_urls = ["ssl://control-plane-2-host:9711"]
    
    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username= "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password= "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://localhost:${mgt.transport.https.port}/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://localhost:5672"]
    
    [[apim.event_hub.publish.url_group]]
    urls = ["tcp://control-plane-host:9611"]
    auth_urls = ["ssl://control-plane-host:9711"]
    

    Info

    As there are two event hubs in a HA setup, each event hub has to publish events to both event streams. This will be done through the event streams created with apim.event_hub.publish.url_group. The token revocation events that are received to an event hub will be duplicated to the other event hub using event_duplicate_url.

    Add Event Listener Configurations:

    The below configurations are only added to the Control Plane if you are using the Resident Key Manager (resides in the Control Plane). If you are using WSO2 IS as Key Manager, you need to add these in the IS node. Once you add the below configurations, the Control Plane or Identity Server will listen to token revocation events and invoke the notification_endpoint regarding the revoked token.

    # Event Listener configurations
    [[event_listener]]
    id = "token_revocation"
    type = "org.wso2.carbon.identity.core.handler.AbstractIdentityHandler"
    name = "org.wso2.is.notification.ApimOauthEventInterceptor"
    order = 1
    
    [event_listener.properties]
    notification_endpoint = "https://[control-plane-LB-host]/internal/data/v1/notify"
    username = "${admin.username}"
    password = "${admin.password}"
    'header.X-WSO2-KEY-MANAGER' = "default"
    # Event Listener configurations
    [[event_listener]]
    id = "token_revocation"
    type = "org.wso2.carbon.identity.core.handler.AbstractIdentityHandler"
    name = "org.wso2.is.notification.ApimOauthEventInterceptor"
    order = 1
    
    [event_listener.properties]
    notification_endpoint = "https://[control-plane-host]:${mgt.transport.https.port}/internal/data/v1/notify"
    username = "${admin.username}"
    password = "${admin.password}"
    'header.X-WSO2-KEY-MANAGER' = "default"
  3. If required, encrypt the Auth Keys (access tokens, client secrets, and authorization codes), see Encrypting OAuth Keys.

  4. Optionally, add the following configuration to enable distributed cache invalidation within the Control Plane nodes.

    [apim.cache_invalidation]
    enabled = true
    domain = "control-plane-domain"
    
  5. Follow the steps given below to configure High Availability (HA) for the Control Plane:

    1. Create a copy of the API-M Control Plane node that you just configured. This is the second node of the API-M Control Plane cluster.

    2. Configure a load balancer fronting the two Control Plane nodes in your deployment. For instructions, see Configuring the Proxy Server and the Load Balancer.

Configure the Traffic Manager Nodes

In a typical distributed deployment, all API-M components (excluding the API-M Gateway) run in the Control Plane. However, you have the option of separating the Traffic Manager from the Control Plane.

Configure the Traffic Manager to communicate with the Control Plane.

  1. Open the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file of the Traffic Manager node.

  2. Add the following configurations to the deployment.toml file.

    Connecting the Traffic Manager to the Control Plane node:

    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-LB-host]/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://control-plane-1-host:5672", "tcp://control-plane-2-host:5672"]
    # Event Hub configurations
    [apim.event_hub]
    enable = true
    username = "$ref{super_admin.username}"
    password = "$ref{super_admin.password}"
    service_url = "https://[control-plane-host]/services/"
    event_listening_endpoints = ["tcp://control-plane-host:5672"]

    Info

    With event_listening_endpoints, the Traffic Manager is subscribed to the JMS stream of both event hubs. Once a policy-related event is received, it will pull the execution plans from the service_url.

    If the Traffic Manager node is configured with High Availability (HA), configure rate limiting as follows.

    [apim.throttling]
    event_duplicate_url = ["tcp://traffic-manager-2-host:5672"]
    throttle_decision_endpoints = ["tcp://localhost:5672"]

    Info

    The event_duplicate_url will publish rate limiting decisions to the other Traffic Manager node to maintain consistency.

  3. Follow the steps given below to configure High Availability (HA) for the Traffic Manager.

    1. Create a copy of the Traffic Manager node that you just configured. This is the second node of the Traffic Manager cluster.

    2. Configure a load balancer fronting the two Traffic Manager nodes in your deployment.

      Note

      In each startup of a Traffic Manager node, the rate-limiting policies are redeployed by retrieving the latest policy details from the database. This maintains the consistency between the Traffic Manager nodes. If you need to avoid redeploying certain rate-limiting policies, add the following configuration to the <API-M_HOME>/repository/conf/deployment.toml file in the Traffic Manager node.

      [apim.throttling]
      skip_redeploying_policies = ["throttle_policy_1","throttle_policy_2"]
      

Sample configuration for the Traffic Manager

[server]
hostname = "tm.am.wso2.com"
node_ip = "127.0.0.1"
server_role = "traffic-manager"

[transport.https.properties]

Step 7 - Start the API-M nodes

Once you have successfully configured all the API-M nodes in the deployment, you can start the servers.

  • Starting the Gateway nodes

    Open a terminal, navigate to the <API-M-GATEWAY-HOME>/bin folder, and execute the following command:

    cd <API-M_HOME>/bin/
    sh api-manager.sh -Dprofile=gateway-worker
    cd <API-M_HOME>\bin\
    api-manager.bat --run -Dprofile=gateway-worker
  • Start the Control Plane nodes

    Open a terminal, navigate to the <API-M-CONTROL-PLANE-HOME>/bin folder, and execute the following command:

    cd <API-M_HOME>/bin/
    sh api-manager.sh -Dprofile=control-plane
    cd <API-M_HOME>\bin\
    api-manager.bat --run -Dprofile=control-plane
  • Start the Traffic Manager nodes

    Open a terminal, navigate to the <API-M-TRAFFIC-MANAGER-HOME>/bin folder, and execute the following command:

    cd <API-M_HOME>/bin/
    sh api-manager.sh -Dprofile=traffic-manager
    cd <API-M_HOME>\bin\
    api-manager.bat --run -Dprofile=traffic-manager

For more information on starting API-M profiles, see API-M Profiles.
