3 Kong Features That Make It Easier to Extend Kong

Revisit one of our most popular sessions from API Summit 2023!

Ubisoft details how they built a custom control plane on top of Kong to enable self-service APIs, using key capabilities like the decluttering tool deck to easily synchronize states, dry run mode for safe testing, and event hooks to avoid configuration drift. This setup enforces standards via admin-defined workspaces while allowing service developers autonomy via OpenAPI docs, reconciling the views for infrastructure as code. The speaker highlights how Kong's unique features made it well-suited for Ubisoft to fulfill requirements around unified user experience, security rules, and automation.
