In addition to applications, the IBM App Connect catalog can include imported APIs, imported SOAP web services, and shared APIs. You can add these APIs and web services as target applications in your flows in the same way as the IBM, partner, and third-party applications.

Note: Instead of invoking operations for APIs that are imported or shared in App Connect, you can call out to an API endpoint by using the invoke method for the HTTP application. See Calling out to an API endpoint by using the invoke method for the HTTP application.

API icon Imported APIs (OpenAPI)

To import APIs into the App Connect catalog, click Add your API or web service now on the APIs tab to upload OpenAPI documents that contain API definitions. These APIs are tagged with an imported label Imported label for APIs.

SOAP icon Imported web services (SOAP)

To import SOAP web services into the App Connect catalog, click Add your API or web service now on the APIs tab to upload WSDL or ZIP files that contain web service definitions. These web services are tagged with an imported label Imported label for APIs.

API icon Shared APIs (IBM Cloud)

If using IBM App Connect on IBM Cloud, you’ll automatically see all APIs that are shared in your IBM Cloud organization using native API management.

    I’m trying to attack the API of a 3rd party (Tink) so I do not have access to the OpenAPI file. How can I proceed to consume their services within a flow of AppConnect?
