Out of the Box

Tyk API Management platform, out of the box and without charge includes an API dashboard, developer portal and powerful analytics.

No need to maintain forks, third party dependencies, or purchase SaaS add-ons. Just download the FREE Open Source API Gateway, get a FREE developer licence for Tyk dashboard, use Tyk non-commercially... for FREE.

You only pay us when you want to use Tyk Commercially, or if you prefer to use our SaaS, not to add features.

Detailed Monitoring and Analytics

Tyk Open Source API Gateway records detailed analytics about how your APIs are being used, view hourly data that can be easily segmented, track upstream latency and chart it for each API you are managing.

API Developer Portal

Publish your managed APIs to your customisable, mobile-enabled API portal and let developers manage their own keys, sign up and enroll to your APIs, with a flexible workflow and developer analytics.

API Documentation

Publish your API Documentation to your portal using Swagger or API Blueprint, let users interact with your API using Swagger UI’s sandbox right from your portal.

Developer Onboarding

Let developers manage their own keys, sign up and enroll to your APIs, with a flexible workflow.

Quotas and Rate Limiting

Set rate limiting, request throttling, and auto-renewing request quotas to manage how your users access your API via the Open Source API Gateway.


Tyk Open Source API Gateway supports access tokens, HMAC request signing, JSON Web tokens, OpenID Connect, basic auth, LDAP, Social OAuth (e.g. GPlus, Twitter, Github) and legacy Basic Authentication providers.

Mock out APIs

Use our API controls to mock out API versions before release. Import API Blueprints from Apiary or Swagger to make it easier than ever to start with Tyk.

Notifications and Events

Use our event system to hook into existing infrastructure and get up-to-the-minute notifications when key events happen on your services, APIs, portals or developers.

On-the-fly Transforms

Inject proprietary headers and transform inbound and outbound request data using our simple template and middleware system.

Microservice Focus

Circuit breakers, hard timeouts, service discovery and load balancing, all designed to integrate your microservices.

Virtual Endpoints

Create AWS Lambda-style programatic endpoints in JavaScript to orchestrate service responses.

API Sharding
