Open source API Portal now generally available
Publiseringsdato: 16 april, 2021
The API Portal lets you create and publish a customized site with API documentation, for free and without writing code.
Leverage a GitHub-based workflow that enables collaboration between API providers and API consumers, source control, automation, and free hosting.
Capabilities are designed to help you:
- Create a modern API documentation portal with REST API reference pages, code samples, and an interactive console. It can be customized through a drag-and-drop, no-code visual editor.
- Design a GitHub-based API ecosystem for communication and collaboration between API providers and API consumers. Track source code changes, automate portal deployments with GitHub Actions, and host the site for free with GitHub Pages.
- Publish the portal within the organization to catalog APIs for discoverability, deduplication of assets, and business efficiency.
- Release the branded portal to partners or external consumers for discoverability and self-onboarding.
API Portal relies on the same technology as the Azure API Management’s developer portal (documentation, GitHub), which is used by thousands of Microsoft Azure customers.
