Earlier this year, we announced the end-of-life of Layer7 API Developer Portal v3.5 (Classic). As we continue evolving the product portfolio to meet our customers' needs, we would like to remind you that the End-of-Life of Layer 7 API Developer Portal v 3.5 (Classic) is scheduled for February 25th 2021.  

This End-of-Life announcement applies to the following production and non-production form factors:

  • CA API Developer Portal Software
  • CA API Developer Portal Virtual Appliance (RHEL)
  • CA API Developer Amazon Machine Image (AMI/RHEL)

Continuous evolution of the current offering in-the-market is paired with decommissioning of the older and non up-to-date product versions. This allows us to effectively focus our development resources to adding value to what matters most to the customers.

In order to make your migration to newer version of the Layer 7 API Developer Portal as seamless and straightforward as possible, we are offering the following:
