Vendor Specific Extensions

WSO2 API Manager utilizes the vendor extensions support in Open API specification, to store operations such as throttling, against each API. As per the current implementation, following extensions are supported by API Manager:

x-auth-type

x-auth-type specifies the authentication type of an API resource. It needs to be configured per each resource.

x-auth-type could be any of the following values:

Authentication Type Description
None No token required to invoke the resource
Application Token generated specific to the application is required to invoke the API
Application User Token generated specific to the end-user is required to invoke the API
Application & Application User Both type of tokens can be used to invoke the API

The following example applies Application User authentication type to the given API resource:

 paths:
     /getOpeation:
         get:
             responses:
                 200:
                     description: "OK"
             security:
                 -
                     default: []
             x-auth-type: "Application User"

x-throttling-tier

x-throttling tier specifies the rate limiting policy associated with the API. It can be configured at either API level or Resource level. If rate limiting is at the API level, then x-throttling-tier should be provided at the API level. If rate limiting is per operation, then x-throttling-tier should be provided for each resource.

The following example applies rate limiting at the operation level:

 paths:
     /getOpeation:
         get:
             responses:
                 200:
                     description: "OK"
             security:
                 -
                     default: []
             x-auth-type: "Application & Application User"
             x-throttling-tier: "50KPerMin"

x-wso2-auth-header

x-wso2-auth-header specifies the authorization header that should be provided when invoking the API. It applies at the root level API definition.

The following example sets the Authorization header as “AuthHeader”. The API invocation request should be sent with a header named as “AuthHeader” to the Gateway with the access token.

 paths:
     /sample:
         get:
             parameters: []
             responses:
             200:
                 description: "ok"
             security:
             - default: []
             x-auth-type: "None"
             x-throttling-tier: "Unlimited"
     components:
     securitySchemes:
         default:
             type: "oauth2"
             flows:
             implicit:
                 authorizationUrl: "https://test.com"
                 scopes: {}
 x-wso2-auth-header: "AuthHeader"

x-wso2-cors

x-wso2-cors specifies the configurations related to CORS. It applied at the root level API definition.

The following table lists the properties that need to add to configure the CORS configurations:

Properties Type Description
corsConfigurationEnabled Boolean Specifies whether CORs is enabled
accessControlAllowOrigins String Specifies the allowed origins
accessControlAllowCredentials Boolean Specifies whether the response to the request can be exposed to the page
accessControlAllowHeaders String Specifies the allowed headers.
accessControlAllowMethods String Specifies the allowed HTTP methods.

The following example enables the CORs configuration of the API, by allowing all origins.

 x-wso2-cors:
     corsConfigurationEnabled: true
     accessControlAllowOrigins:
         - '*'
     accessControlAllowCredentials: false
     accessControlAllowHeaders:
         - AuthHeader
         - Access-Control-Allow-Origin
         - Content-Type
         - SOAPAction
     accessControlAllowMethods:
         - GET
         - PUT
         - POST
         - DELETE

x-wso2-production-endpoints

x-wso2-production-endpoints specifies the production endpoint configuration and applied at root level API definition.

The following table lists the attributes that can be configured under x-wso2-production-endpoints:

Properties Type Description
urls String Specifies the production endpoint URL
type String Specifies the endpoint type (“http” for REST endpoints, “address” for SOAP endpoints)

The following example illustrates how to define x-wso2-production-endpoints extension:

 x-wso2-production-endpoints:
     urls:
         - 'https://petstore.swagger.io/v2'
     type: http

x-wso2-sandbox-endpoints

x-wso2-sandbox-endpoints specifies the sandbox endpoint configuration and applied at root level API definition.

The following table lists the attributes that can be configured under x-wso2-sandbox-endpoints:

Properties Type Description
urls String Specifies the sandbox endpoint URL
type String Specifies the endpoint type (“http” for REST endpoints, “address” for SOAP endpoints)

The following example illustrates how to define x-wso2-sandbox-endpoints extension:

 x-wso2-sandbox-endpoints:
     urls:
         - 'https://petstore.swagger.io/v2'
     type: http

x-wso2-basePath

x-wso2-basePath specifies the base path of the API which will be prefixed with all API paths. This extension is derived from the context and version while generating the API. It applies to the root level API definition.

The basepath for an API can be specified as follows:

 x-wso2-basePath: "/swaggerPetStore/1.0.0"

x-wso2-transports

x-wso2-transports specifies the in which the API will be exposed in the Gateway. It is a string property that applies at the API root level. Possible values for this extension are http, https.

As the example given below, the transport layers can be specified for an API:

 x-wso2-transports:
     - "http"
     - "https"

x-scopes-mappings

x-scopes-mappings specifies the scopes associated with the API. It is a root API level extension and can be added in the following syntax:

 securitySchemes:
     default:
         type: "oauth2"
         flows:
             implicit:
                 authorizationUrl: "https://test.com"
                 scopes:
                 ManageScope: "This scope is used to invoke Managed APIs"
                 x-scopes-mappings:
                 ManageScope:
                     display-name: "Manage Scope"
                 x-scopes-bindings: {}
It will result in an API that is associated with a scope named as ManageScope. The extension x-scopes-bindings can be used to associate roles to this scope.

x-scopes-bindings

x-scopes-bindings specify the scope-role mapping when an API resource is protected with scope bindings. It is a root API level extension. The following example associates the internal/subscriber role with the given scope.

 securitySchemes:
     default:
         type: "oauth2"
         flows:
             implicit:
                 authorizationUrl: "https://test.com"
                 scopes:
                 ManageScope: "This scope is used to invoke Managed APIs"
                 x-scopes-mappings:
                 ManageScope:
                     display-name: "Manage Scope"
                 x-scopes-bindings:
                 ManageScope: "internal/subscriber"

x-wso2-soap

x-wso2-soap is an optional extension that is generated at resource level API definition while generating REST APIs from WSDL. The following example shows an example extension generated for a given WSDL.

     paths:
         /lists:
         post:
             operationId: "listUsers"
             parameters:
                 -
                     in: "body"
                     name: "Payload"
                     required: true
                     schema:
                     $ref: "#/definitions/listUsers"
             responses:
                 default:
                         description: ""
                         schema:
                             $ref: "#/definitions/listUsersOutput"
                 security:
                     -
                         default: []
                 x-wso2-soap:
                     soap-action: ""
                     soap-operation: "listUsers"
                     namespace: "http://com.innovation"
                     x-soap-version: "1.1"
                 x-auth-type: "Application & Application User"
                 x-throttling-tier: “Unlimited”

x-wso2-mutual-ssl

x-wso2-mutual-ssl also used to define a transport-level security protocol as the x-wso2-transports extension. There are two keywords that bind with this extension. To make mutual-SSL optional user has to use the “optional” keyword and to make this mutual-SSL mandatory for an API the keyword is “mandatory”.

As the example given below, the x-wso2-mutual-ssl extension can be specified for an API:

 x-wso2-transports:
     - "http"
     - "https"
 x-wso2-mutual-ssl: optional

x-wso2-response-cache

x-wso2-response-cache used to enable response caching when creating a new API with cache timeout.

The response cache enabling and the timeout for an API can be specified as follows:

 x-wso2-response-cache:
     enabled: true
     cacheTimeoutInSeconds: 600
