Federated API management

Control planes

Get consistent configuration and policies at scale by organizing Kong Gateway data plane instances, services, teams, and environments into logical groups.

Governance at scale

Control plane groups

Empower platform teams to combine configuration from standard control planes to provide application teams with flexibility, environment isolation, and ease of use while leveraging a single pool of Kong Gateway data planes.

Access control

Role-based access control

Add new developers or partners to specific control planes and enforce consistent role-based access policies.


Secrets management

Improve the security of your data planes with centralized vaults to safely store and retrieve secrets.
