One Size Doesn’t Fit All - Building Contextualized API Specifications - Boris Vernoff, ADP Inc.

In today’s complicated application landscape, the APIs are the foundation of any integration as well as digital transformation, and the API specifications are quickly becoming a very important component of the company public image. Many large companies (including ADP) expose a broad variety of capabilities targeted to different consumers and the API specifications should be flexible enough to reflect different usage contexts, i.e., geo-political, industry specific, level/tier of service, etc.

This session focuses on creating and exposing contextualized API specifications that may include different operations, parameter obligation, customized descriptions / examples and potentially, different subsets of the same schema, depending on access entitlements of the consumers accessing the API Portal. The “design” view could also be combined with the runtime discovery of additional API “metadata”, thus allowing API providers for a greater flexibility exposing their API specifications to different consumers.
