Authorization and Access Control

Access Rules implement authorization logic that may include specific API caller identities, request formats, message content, date/time schedules, access patterns or any other custom logic added by an API provider.

Access Rules are reusable components stored in the API Repository. They can be assigned to more than one REST API or SOAP service. More than one Access Rule can be assigned to an API or a service.
