Virtualizing A New Restful Service Endpoint On API Gateway Removes Existing Listener And Endpoints (Doc ID 1997940.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 20, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle API Gateway - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Existing Listener and endpoints and virtualized soap services are inadvertently removed when virtualizing a new Restful Service Endpoint on API Gateway. When adding a new Restful service endpoint through the API Service Manager tab on the API gateway manager console, a Listener and all the existing endpoints (SOAP service endpoints) that had been added previously get removed.
It also seems like all the API services get added even though only 1 was selected to be deployed from the API Service Manager

There is no error. Just the functionality is abnormal. Virtualizing a new Restful Service Endpoint on API Gateway Manager seems to cause the listener to be removed from Policy Studio.

As workaround, it is necessary to add the restful API service and then re-add the listener and all the virtualized soap services.
