Configuring the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) API Gateway


Configuring the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) API Gateway

Configuring the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) API Gateway involves several steps, such as setting up the API Gateway itself, creating the required API deployments, and configuring routes and policies. Here’s a high-level overview of the steps you would typically follow to get this set up:


  • Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) account
  • Required IAM roles and permissions
  • Oracle Cloud CLI installed and configured
  • Basic understanding of API Gateway and RESTful APIs


  1. Login to Oracle Cloud Console: Navigate to the Oracle Cloud Console and login with your credentials.

  2. Create a VCN: If you haven’t already, create a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) in the desired compartment.

  3. Create an API Gateway:

    • Go to “Developer Services” -> “API Gateway”
    • Click on “Create API Gateway”
    • Enter the necessary information such as name, compartment, VCN, and subnet.
  4. Create a Deployment:

    • Inside the API Gateway you’ve created, click on “Deployments”.
    • Click “Create Deployment”.
    • Fill in the required fields like path prefix, compartment, etc.
  5. Add Routes and Methods:

    • After creating a deployment, you’ll have the option to add routes.
    • Define your route path and HTTP methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.)
  6. Define Policies:

    • You can add authentication, rate-limiting, or CORS policies if needed.
  7. Activate Deployment:

    • Once you are satisfied with the configuration, click on “Activate Deployment”.
  8. Test API:

    • After activation, you will receive an API endpoint URL.
    • Test this URL with tools like Postman or by using curl in the terminal to ensure everything is working as expected.
  9. Monitoring and Logging:

    • OCI offers monitoring and logging capabilities, which you can enable for your API Gateway.
