Guidewire Cloud Platform

Connect Apps Easily with Integration Gateway

Integration Gateway in the Integration Framework

The Integration Gateway is a cloud-managed service that supports integrations between InsuranceSuite and third-party or internal applications. Using the Integration Gateway infrastructure and operations, development teams create new integration projects, develop their implementations locally, and deploy them to the Guidewire Cloud Platform (GWCP).


  • Faster updates with a cloud microservice that externalizes integration logic from the core
  • Leverage a broad community of skilled developers familiar with Apache Camel to support any integration pattern
  • Connect any API to quickly expand your ecosystem with Guidewire Marketplace integrations

Further Automate Development with Public Deployment APIs for InsuranceSuite

Deployment APIs for InsuranceSuite

In Elysian, we’ve exposed a new set of Deployment APIs publicly. This will allow you to trigger a new InsuranceSuite nonproduction application deployment independent of Guidewire Cloud Console.

This set of public APIs allows further automation of your overall development cycle and easy integration with your global deployment pipeline.

Digital Experiences

Leverage Jutro in Figma to Deliver Compelling Digital Experiences

The Jutro pattern and component library is now available in Figma design software, empowering designers to create unique themes and styles that reflect your brand.

With Jutro’s updates to global and component-level styling and P&C UI components, you’ll be able to accelerate development, and drastically reduce project implementation time.

Streamline Development by Generating Custom Cloud API Endpoints for InsuranceSuite

Custom Cloud API Endpoints

The system APIs in InsuranceSuite Cloud API have a set of default behaviors in the base configuration. However, through configuration, their behaviors can be modified. Developers can configure system API behavior, including generating endpoints for custom entities by using the REST endpoint generator.

You can now add custom Cloud API endpoints for your business extensions to the InsuranceSuite datamodel, side-by-side with OOTB endpoints, reducing complexity in calling and developing APIs.


  • Open Cloud Integration features such as Composite API and Application Events for custom endpoints, accelerating and simplifying integrations
  • Automate the generation of API code, speeding up development with a guided step-by-step experience

Enable Third-Party Digital Capabilities with an Enhanced InsuranceNow API

The InsuranceNow API enables the development of InsuranceNow portals. With Elysian, the InsuranceNow API includes additional claim endpoints, as well as new billing functionalities, such as selecting or updating pay plans, making recurring and one-time payments, generating a billing schedule, and selecting or updating payment sources.
