Run anywhere. DreamFactory is scalable, stateless, and portable. You can run it on private, public, or hybrid infrastructure and easily move your apps between servers.
Fast migrations. DreamFactory allows you to push package files between instances using either the REST API or the Admin Console for easy deployment.
Publish your APIs with ease. You can expose as many APIs and API keys as you need and apply flexible role-based access control to every API endpoint.
Complete oversight over APIs endpoints. The admin console makes it easy to centrally manage the entire DreamFactory Platform. All of the administrative capabilities are also exposed as a REST API to automate repetitive tasks.
Integrate natively with over 20 different databases including big data services like Snowflake and Hadoop.
Autogenerate REST API for any SQL server. DreamFactory automatically generates REST endpoints for data, schema, functions, stored procedures, and API parameters for complex filters, pagination, sorting, related table joins, virtual foreign keys, and more.
Autogenerate unlimited REST APIs in your environment with any artificial limits.
Auto-documentation. DreamFactory automatically generates interactive Swagger API documentation for every connected data source.
Stay GDPR and HIPAA compliant. DreamFactory is a privacy-by-design product engineered to fold in the governance safeguards to keep your data safe. Our authenication suite includes OAuth, AD, LDAP, OpenID, Okta, AuthO, and SAML.
Flexible reporting on API calls. DreamFactory’s Security module comes with the popular ELK stack for logging and reporting on API traffic.
RBAC on API endpoints and/or the Admin panel. Full control of what each API has access to from the database. DreamFactory makes API endpoints and accessibilities more secure with User Management.
Security is key. DreamFactory is security forward, so APIs are secured by default with an API Key and limited access. Instantly and easily roll your keys and reissue them as needed.
Obfuscate endpoints, automate workflows, schedule notifications updates and more with any number of pre- or post-process scripts.
Supporting four scripting engines (NodeJS, PHP, Python, and V8JS), custom logic can be used to validate input parameters, transform responses to suit client requirements, and even call other APIs.
Modernization makes simple. DreamFactory automatically converts the JSON request into SOAP, calls the legacy SOAP service, and then the SOAP response is converted back to JSON for the client application.
You can instantly turn any WSDL into a live, fully documented REST API.

DreamFactory Platform & Installer FAQs
API management software helps you manage your custom APIs, but you have to build REST APIs yourself. DreamFactory, on the other hand, is a transactional run-time server for client applications that
1) automatically generates REST APIs for you,
2) enables you to customize API behavior with server-side scripts
3) manages all the backend security for those APIs
4) returns JSON / XML from REST API calls at runtime.
Since DreamFactory is self-hosted software, we require a call with an engineer to discuss licensing, installation, and pricing. This will ensure you have all the information needed to be successful.
If you are not ready for a call, we recommend you try our hosted trial. It's a limited version of the product, but it will give you a taste of how our automatic API generation, role-based access, and documentation works
Start in our documentation, but if you don't see your answer, please ask a question in the intercom chat bubble or schedule a call with our support team.
