Users that are signed up to your portal are called “Developers”, these users have access to a Dashboard page which show them their API usage over the past 7 days as well as the policy and quota limits on their relevant keys.
Developers can sign up to multiple APIs using the API catalogue.
Developer accounts belong to an organisation ID, so accounts cannot be shared across organisations in a Tyk Dashboard setup.
