Community Manager - API Developer Portal

Community Manager is an API Portal that enables API producers to engage partners and developers and help them onboard, manage and test their Apps. Community Manager unites API providers and App developers through a single common portal that can be easily branded and customized. Community Manager allows API Providers to publish, document, promote and support their APIs, and App Developers to easily find, consume and get support for the APIs their Apps use.

Personalized Dashboard and Notifications

Keep partners engaged and provide them with personalized dashboards for analytics and monitoring of API and App performance. Provide partners with insights into how your APIs are driving their business and allow them to explore areas where they can further optimize and grow.

Integrated App and API lifecycle management

Users can request access to an API on behalf of their App - accepting relevant legal agreements and selecting from pre-defined policies - initiating a workflow process with optional approval and activation steps involving the administrators of the API and App. The default workflow provides for:

  • Automatic approval and activation of requests to a sandbox API endpoint
  • API administrator approval required for access to production endpoints
  • App administrator activation required for production access
  • API administrators can suspend and reactivate, or even cancel an App’s access to their API
