API Gateway

Infor OS API Gateway is a software system for brokering requests from API consumers, such as web and mobile applications, and API providers, such as Infor CloudSuites and third-party services. All available SaaS APIs are managed and accessed via the API Gateway.

As a broker, the API Gateway sits between consumers and providers (technically, it is a reverse proxy).

An API call refers to the full cycle of request sent to the API Gateway and the response received. This includes inbound API calls from clients to the gateway and its corresponding outgoing API call to the target API. In case of API Orchestration-based requests, each individual API call in the flow amounts to a separate API call.
