Catalog, manage, publish, track, and securely share APIs for developers inside and outside your organization

What Is Gloo Portal?

Gloo Portal is a Kubernetes-native API developer portal built to run natively with Istio and Envoy Proxy that enables GitOps and CI/CD workflows.

Fully integrated with Gloo Mesh Enterprise and Gloo Edge Enterprise, the portal abstracts the complexity and enables developers to publish, document, share, discover, and use APIs with rich controls, detailed configuration information, and comprehensive security.

You can define application policies that affect the service mesh itself, including access, routes, policies, and configurations, making self-service a reality.

Gloo Portal improves API-producer and -consumer developer productivity for both Kubernetes and traditional environments. Supports gRPC and REST APIs together.

Power your GitOps strategy
Document, expose, compose, and share APIs for use in your continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines
Extend to the enterprise
Enable authentication/authorization, usage plans and policies, self-service documentation, and self-service sign up
Track and show usage of APIs
Get a graph of activity for show-back, charge-back, or even monetization when paired with a billing solution (like Stripe)

Now GA - Gloo Portal version 1.0

The latest release of Gloo Portal includes new major features to drive your adoption of cloud-native APIs including detailed tracking of API usage (for visibility, show-back, or even charge-back), improved self-service usability, and full integration with Gloo Edge.
