Integration Options

Tyk has multiple integration options with third parties, and these integrations can occur in a few places:

  • For plugins - Within the Gateway itself using Dynamic JS Middleware (Multi-Cloud or On-Premises only)
  • For API Auth mode and Tyk’s platform login - Externally to the gateway using a broker (The Tyk Identity Broker) (On-Premises only)
  • For API Auth mode - Built-in federation support via JSON Web Tokens or Open ID Connect (Cloud, Multi-Cloud and On-Premises)

All three of the above have different and unique use cases and can be deployed differently depending on your platform and integration requirements.
