Express Gateway has a lot of powerful features beyond just auth. Another important feature is rate limiting, which throttles requests to one or more endpoints. Express Gateway has a lot of tuneable options for configuring throttling: you can throttle requests on a per user, per endpoint, or per pipeline basis. In this article, I’ll walk you through a “Hello, World” example of using Express Gateway’s rate limiting policy, and then show a practical use case of rate limiting based on user API keys.
Express Gateway has built-in support for numerous authentication mechanisms, like OAuth2 and key auth. On top of these authentication mechanisms, Express Gateway supports restricting access to certain endpoints to certain users using the notion of scopes. In this article, I’ll provide a “Hello, World” example of using scopes and then dive into a more realistic example of using scopes to protect access to an external API.
