Publish an API

Publishing an API on API Central consists of two steps; API providers can choose to do one or the other, or both.

Require Authorization to Access an API

Access credentials provide powerful options for managing your API. Here are some examples:

Add Interactive Docs for the API

You can choose to publish documentation on some or all of the endpoints of your API.

The API portal goes beyond static documentation by providing an interactive client (based on Swagger) that allows users to work with the API endpoints directly from the browser. That is, users can learn the API and test it without having to write any code. This capability greatly reduces the barrier to entry for potential API consumers.

The documentation can be published for RESTful APIs, whether or not they are managed via credentials.
