Gateway provides self-service capabilities to end-users by automating IT service requests via built-in web forms. So, whether users need device registration and onboarding or configuration and permissions management, BlueCat Gateway empowers IT to instantly meet the broadest range of unique end user requirements.

Workflow Management

BlueCat Gateway lets organizations build, verify, and validate modules in a test environment and then easily promote them to a production environment. This modular approach simplifies change and workflow management via an intuitive interface that eliminates the need to train users on complex technical processes while preventing costly mistakes.

Python API support for integrating solutions between BlueCat products

BlueCat Gateway provides an API with a set of Python classes for integrating solutions with Address Manager, BlueCat DNS/DHCP Server (BDDS), and BlueCat DNS Edge. Gateway also includes a customized Python Flask web framework for building custom user interfaces and REST endpoints.

Configuration and Provisioning

BlueCat Gateway automates the DNS services necessary to provision and deallocate cloud and on-premise resources, enabling IT to respond faster to user requests. Automated cloud provisioning reduces bottlenecks in delivering cloud services that all too often result in shadow IT, minimizing security risks and excessive costs that IT is unable to manage.

BlueCat Labs Community-Powered PlugIns and Workflows

BlueCat Gateway integrates seamlessly with BlueCat Labs, our community-powered GitHub repository. Here you’ll find a wide range of tools including production-ready workflows, examples, and unique community contributed solutions to make your network more efficient, eliminate errors and downtime, and integrate DNS into the network management solutions you use every day.

Cloud Discovery and Visibility

BlueCat Gateway helps IT automate the provisioning of diverse cloud and network resources quickly and reliably, providing end-to-end service visibility and discovery to multiple clouds and cloud providers from any location, whenever they need it.

Supported Clouds: AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
