RapidAPI Enterprise Hub

Accelerate innovation and bring software to market
faster with a private API Marketplace

The API Platform for
Next Generation APIs

REST, SOAP, GraphQL, Kafka, and more. Today, organizations have invested in or are thinking about investing in different API types.

Additionally, the number of APIs in an organization is rapidly growing – from hundreds to thousands.

It’s clear that the current API infrastructure cannot address the growing demand – a new platform is needed to address the next generation of APIs.

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub Enables a Many-to-Many Model

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub provides a centralized internal marketplace for helping developers, product managers, IT, and API creators to find, manage, and connect to all APIs — using a single key and SDK. RapidAPI Enterprise Hub  also enables organizations to offer APIs to internal consumers as well as partners and customers.

The Enterprise Hub:

  • Provides a white-labeled, enterprise API marketplace
  • Offers a private API marketplace for developers, analysts and product managers to discover and connect to internal APIs, as well as API subscriptions
  • Enables companies to provide an external marketplace to customers and partners that want to find and connect to their APIs
  • Delivers management capabilities that enable you to govern and manage API consumption with enhanced visibility and control

How RapidAPI Enterprise Hub Fits into Your Existing Infrastructure

An API gateway is an architectural component that sits in front of the server to perform certain standard functionality required to make the API ready for real-world use such as traffic management, API key authentication, etc.

The RapidAPI Hub is a single consolidation layer that sits in front of an API Gateway, enabling your developers to find, connect to, and manage hundreds of APIs across all teams within your organization. The RapidAPI gateway integration works by communicating with the gateway admin API to provision certain objects and forward logs back to the RapidAPI Enterprise Hub.
