In this tutorial, Niklas Heidloff discusses how to deploy an API to IBM’s latest cloud offering, Bluemix, via Node.js. This tutorial references a previous project on how to use Swagger to document APIs in Node apps, with additional information on deploying via Docker while using the API management service for allowing API owners to monitor usage.
The tutorial begins by describing how to deploy a Node app to IBM as a Docker Container, with code and relevant screenshots provided. Next, the author explains how to enforce a client ID and secret when invoking the API using Bluemix’s API management service.
Detailed screenshots show specific Bluemix configurations to apply, outputting the author’s personalised version of the “Hello, World” standard.
