Dataporten – an API platform for higher education

UNINETT has expanded its Identity ecosystem Feide with an API Platform for authorization, groups and data sharing, Dataporten – in production from March 2016. Dataporten also offers a self service interface for adding third party data sources that will be protected using the same OAuth authorization layer, proxying authorization data to the original API in a very developer friendly way. Third party data sources will end up in the API library of Dataporten Developer Dashboard. Dataporten encourage application developers to split the data source and business logic away from the frontend, and exposing a re-usable API to connect the components. Dataporten introduces new elements that also affects end-users, such as an improved identity provider discovery, introduction of an account chooser, an user-centric data/ API grant dialog and more.
