WSO2 Micro Integrator, a first taste

Posted by Rutger van Iperen on 13 Sep, 2018

At WSO2 Con USA 2018, last July, Tyler Jewell announced the Micro Integrator (or MicroESB). The Micro Integrator was released with Enterprise Integrator 6.3.0 earlier that day. The Micro Integrator is more lightweight than its bigger brother and designed to be container-friendly. Of course, we would like to see this for ourselves so we took it for a spin.

Ballerina – Yet Another Programming Language?

Posted by Hans Bot on 16 Aug, 2018

Hardly have you finished your first experiment with a new and promising language, and something new, even more promising comes along, waiting to be studied too. It’s hard to keep up, let alone to get some real work done in the meantime. I mean, how many modern computer languages is enough?

Doing a simple scripted setup of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator

Posted by Rob Blaauboer on 9 Aug, 2018

There are several situations where you want or need to set up WSO2. As a trainer, I do this more than I guess almost anybody else. Although making minor changes to WSO2 is not that much work. I’m talking about changing the port offset, changing host names or changing other parameters that will slightly alter the product. It would be nice to have a semi-automated tool that will allow me to do that.

Conditional Authentication with WSO2 Identity Server

Posted by Hasitha de Silva on 26 Jul, 2018

As today’s information systems are going through a rapid wave of security hardening, Multi-Factor Authentication is coming into the spotlight to ensure the identity of a user in more context-aware mechanisms. The ability to adapt and switch based on multiple different scenarios a user may access your system, is imperative in this context.

For example, let's say your system handles user login through 3 factors — Basic credentials, face detection and a One-time-Password sent to the email. Now, if user A is accessing your system from the Company intranet, you may want to make the login process easier by skipping the One-time-Password. This pattern for the Administrator to conditionally enable/ disable steps in the login flow is formally defined as “Conditional Authentication”, and WSO2 Identity Server has come up with a neat feature to facilitate this.

I hope the following walkthrough will help you grasp this concept and use it wisely!
