If a policy is already applied, or if the protection it provides is already fulfilled by a policy you applied, the policy appears unavailable. You can filter the list by policy categories:

  • Compliance

  • Security

  • Quality of Service

After selecting a category, you can further filter the list by the kind of protection it fulfills. Any requirements for achieving the level of protection specified by the filter is also listed.

Anypoint Platform provides the following policies:

  • Add Headers
    Injects HTTP headers to a request or response.

  • Remove Headers
    Removes HTTP headers from a request or response.

  • Client ID Enforcement
    Enforces the requirement for calls to the API must include a valid client ID and client secret. See footnote.

  • Cross-Origin Resource Sharing
    Allows JavaScript XMLHttpRequest (XHR) calls executed in a web page to interact with resources from non-origin domains. CORS is a commonly implemented solution to the "same-origin policy" that is enforced by all browsers. This policy enables all origins, and makes all resources of an API public.

  • HTTP Basic Authentication Policy
    Enforces authentication per the details configured in a Security Manager policy.

  • IP Blacklist
    Denies API calls from a defined set of IP addresses.

  • IP Whitelist
    Limits API calls to a defined set of IP addresses.

  • JSON Threat Protection
    Protects the target API against malicious JSON that could cause problems.

  • LDAP Security Manager
    Injects an LDAP-based security manager into the target API.

  • OAuth 2.0 Access Token Enforcement Using External Provider Policy
    Configures the API so that its endpoints require a mandatory and valid OAuth 2.0 token. You must reference an external Mule application that serves as the OAuth provider. Update the RAML of your API using the provided snippet before using this policy.

  • Rate Limiting
    Limits the number of messages processed by an API per time period at a maximum value specified in the policy. The rate limiting is applied to all API calls, regardless of the source. Any messages beyond the maximum are rejected.
