April Fools' Day traditionally involves the playing of pranks and hoaxes on others, often with media and other organisations making announcements that are then later exposed as jokes. While these are mostly harmless pranks they do sometimes backfire and unfortunately may even have real world implications. Of course we realise that those of you reading the Editorial would never fall for any of these pranks but read on with care, you never know what you are going to find
Users, Roles and Permissions with apiman
The apiman project provides an Open Source solution for API Management allowing you to govern your APIs with a flexible, policy based runtime. The management of the runtime is controlled by permissions granted to a user through roles; these can either be the pre-defined set that comes with apiman or a custom based role that has been defined based on your requirements. The management of users, roles and permissions is straight forward within apiman, for more information on this topic check out Len's post where he discusses the details of the pre-defined roles and how to set up a special role for his brother in law.
