Cequence integrates with the Broadcom API Gateway using the Cequence Broadcom API Gateway Policy Plugin. This Cequence component, installed as a Layer7 API Gateway Global Policy Fragment, captures request and response transaction metadata and, asynchronously, forwards this information via REST API to the UAP API Edge ingestion endpoint. This component does not interfere with the traffic flow. Transactions and transaction metadata forwarded to the Cequence Unified API Protection control platform are available for analysis by API Spartan and API Sentinel.
This document describes the integration of the Cequence Broadcom API gateway Plugin with a Broadcom API gateway deployed as an Appliance. It can also be used for integration with Broadcom gateway deployed as a docker container or in k8s. Integration is accomplished using the Broadcom Layer7 Policy Manager. Integration steps include configuring the Broadcom Layer7 Gateway to use the Cequence Broadcom Layer7 Gateway Plugin. The configuration will also include obtaining authentication credentials to your Cequence UAP control platform and modifying network ingress appropriately to allow for the transmission of transaction data.
Detailed integration steps are available by accessing the Broadcom API Gateway Integration Steps article.
