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 Tyk Self-Managed only)
- For API Auth mode and Tyk’s platform login - Externally to the gateway using a broker (The Tyk Identity Broker) (Tyk Self-Managed 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.
