Customize API Products

To customise the visual appearance of API Products:

  1. Navigate to the API Products menu, select the product that you want to customise (the Payment API in example below). In this menu you can customise the following aspects of API Products:
  • Catalogue display name: This is the name that will be displayed in the external catalogue.
  • Featured API Product: Tick this option for the API Product to appear on the home page under the Featured products section.
  • Description: A short description about what this API Product is. It is displayed in the catalogue and on the API Product page.
  • Content: A long text description that appears on the API Product overview page, the rich text editor enables you to add more information about the API Product e.g. use cases, features, etc.
  • Image: An API Product logo that is displayed on the catalogue and on the API Product pages.
  • Tags: The tags are used to match the API Product with the related blog posts that have the same tags in common.

From that page you can also manage OAuth2.0 settings and add Get started guides to your API Products, which is covered in the relevant sections.

  • Catalogue display name: The name of the catalogue that will be displayed in the API Product page.
  • Scope: Scope for the OAuth2.0 settings. Please refer to the OAuth2.0 documentation for further guidance.
  • Catalogues: The catalogues in which this plan is available. Catalogues and organisation are covered later within this getting started guide.
  • Auto-approve settings for access requests: Determines if access requests for this plan should be approved automatically.
  • Access request frequency: Defines how often developers can request access to a specific plan. This way the admins can prevent developers from creating too many keys and abusing their automatically approved plans.
