RED HAT 3scale API Management Features

Smart, scalable API management.

High performance. Complete control. No compromise.


Access Control

Access control features are essential to make sure you know exactly who uses your API, how it is used, and determine how much they can use it. We make it easy to centrally set up and manage policy and application plans for all your APIs on one platform.


It goes without saying that if you’re planning to open an API, security needs to be carefully considered from the start. Whether your API is public, private, or internal, with 3scale you can choose the authentication type most appropriate to your needs. We offer a range of authentication patterns and credentials to chose from, including unique API keys and OAuth tokens.

Rate Limits

Once you’ve established who gets access, how they get it, and what can be done with your API, you can set even finer grained (traffic) controls through the admin portal. Rate limits allow you to manage and control the flow of access to your API resources. If you have one API or many, you can control access by type of plan or user profile, down to calls allowed per minute.

Developer Portal

One of the best ways to improve the performance and success of your API is to create an amazing developer experience. We provide a state-of-the- art CMS making it super easy to create your own custom domain portal to manage developer interactions and increase API adoption. It’s simple to set up, so you can quickly start promoting your API, sign up developers and give them access to their API keys.


Monitor and set alerts on traffic flow. Provide partners and developers with reports on their traffic with a user dashboard designed for them. Analyze your API traffic through detailed analytics by account, application, or service, and share performance insights across the organization with crisp, clear reporting.

Monetization Tools

We make it easy to reap the benefits of sharing your data assets through simple in-product integrations with popular payment traffic like Stripe, Braintree,, and Ogone. Setting up pricing rules, invoicing and collection with our PCI compliant system is simple.
