The Tyk REST API is file based only as we understand that a lot of users do not want a MongoDB dependency.
The Advanced API that ships with the dashboard provides a full management API that can be used to manage API defs in the DB and have the gateway pull them.
- Tyk Gateway REST API for low level control and node by node management and direct key manipulation
- Tyk Advanced (Dashboard) API for granular control that is DB backed
You make a choice when you install Tyk whether you want the dashboard or not. If you want the dashboard, you will need to opt into mongo and also managing Tyk via the advanced API.
You can migrate definitions by exporting and importing them, or by bridging the two APIs, API IDs are separate from DB IDs, so they can be transferred both ways.
ORG IDs can't, but they are mainly a dashboard construct, because that's where the advanced, granular, access control mechanisms are for Tyk Stack administration.
