I’m pleased to share API Manager CLI utility which could be helpful for engineers working with the Axway API Gateway Manager. This tool is to manage and control API Manager resources without accessing through the Web UI.
Axway API Manager CLI
apimctl is a command line (CLI) utility that allows you to manage Axway’s API Manager resources. This utility allows you to automate the deployment of API Manager resources. It also allows you to view and edit the existing resources. This CLI is developed using Cobra and Viper (golang packages).
Currently, this tool is available in Linux and MacOS:
release=$(curl -Ls https://github.com/Axway-API-Management-Plus/go-apim-cli/releases/latest | grep “releases/download.*linux_amd64″ | cut -d \” -f 2)
wget -q https://github.com/$release
chmod +x apimctl_linux_amd64
mv apimctl_linux_amd64 /usr/local/bin/apimctl
This CLI supports all the CRUD operations on the API Manager resources.
apimctl controls and manages API Manager resources.
Available Commands :
create create an API Manager resource from a file
delete delete an API Manager resource
describe describe an API Manager resource
edit edit an API Manager resource
help help about any command
list list all API Manager resource
login stores the login info of API Manager
publish publish a proxy
