Automate API creation in WSO2 API Manager

This is a python code snippet I wrote to automate API creation in WSO2 API Manager. WSO2 API manager has exposed a API, Publisher API  using which we can perform APIM related task.

This python client first login to APIM and check weather there is already an API with the same name, if not it will create an API. This API has two resources each has unlimited throttling tier

  1. PUT /cart
  2. POST /checkout

In addition API has fail over endpoint, one production endpoint and one fail over endpoint. So once the API is invoked, API first try to reach the production endpoint, if production endpoint is not available it will try to reach fail over endpoint.

Once the API is created, this code will publishes the newly created API so users can subscribe to the API.

	log = LogFactory().get_log(__name__)"Starting api creation plugin...")

        apim_domain = "localhost"
        apim_username = "admin"
        apim_password = "admin"

        endpoint = ""

        url =  'https://%s:9443/publisher/site/blocks/' %  apim_domain

        loging_url = urlparse.urljoin(url, 'user/login/ajax/login.jag')
        payload = {'action':'login', 'username':apim_username, 'password':apim_password }"Login into APIManager %s " % loging_url)
        resp =, data=payload, verify=False)"APIM Logging response %s" % resp)
        cookie = resp.cookies

        swagger = {'paths': {'/cart': {'put': {'x-auth-type': 'None',

        swager_json = json.dumps(swagger)

        api_url = urlparse.urljoin(url,'item-add/ajax/add.jag')

        endpoint_conf = \
            {'production_endpoints': {'url': '',

        endpoint_conf['production_endpoints']['url']= endpoint

        if not api_exist:
