In the first part of this two part blog post, I will describe the use case for which we used Oracle API Platform Cloud Service (shortened to APIPCS from now on) as an outbound API Gateway, offering lookup services and centralizing outbound access. This part will also describe a simple Node.js microservice we deployed to Oracle's Application Container Cloud Service to perform the translation of an internal identification into the API key required by the external API.

The second part of this blog will elaborate on the actual creation of the API definition in APIPCS, the invocation of the microservice using Groovy scripting and the testing of the external API using APIPCS.
