Newbie says hi!
We’re mostly a Java / Kotlin shop, and need to perform multiple API transformations. If they’re to be implemented in code, we’d like to do that in a JVM language like Java, not Lua however great it may be. Declarative transformations (e.g. in a YAML file) would be even better.
Is Kong the right tool for us? If not, would anybody recommend another tool for us? We thought Kong was exactly what we needed, now after reading the docs, we’re not so sure…
Here are some examples of things we’d like to do:
- Our internal backend response may have 417 keys, we want to return 7 of these
- We may want to rename (some of) these response keys
- Query serviceA or serviceB depending on the value of
keyXor some value in the OAuth2 token
- ServiceZ is composed by combining the results of two backend requests, Service X and ServiceY
/v1/some/apibackwards-compatibility by calling
/v2/some/apiand doing appropriate transforms
Also, can all this be done with the Kong Gateway or will we need Kong Enterprise?
