Mender API Gateway

Mender is an open source over-the-air (OTA) software updater for embedded Linux devices. Mender comprises a client running at the embedded device, as well as a server that manages deployments across many devices.

This repository contains the Mender API Gateway, which is part of the Mender server. The Mender server is designed as a microservices architecture and comprises several repositories.

The API Gateway serves as an entrypoint for all HTTP communication with Mender. Its main responsibility is the proxying of requests to Mender services, while rewriting URLs from a public API scheme to an internal one. The gateway also enforces authentication upon every request.

Getting started

To start using Mender, we recommend that you begin with the Getting started section in the Mender documentation.

Building from source

As the Mender server is designed as microservices architecture, it requires several repositories to be built to be fully functional. If you are testing the Mender server it is therefore easier to follow the getting started section above as it integrates these services.

If you would like to build th Mender API Gateway independently, you can follow these steps:

git clone
cd mender-api-gateway-docker
sudo docker build -t mendersoftware/api-gateway .
