Configure a developer portal
Create a developer portal to serve as the central information hub for your developers. A developer portal exposes a company's APIs to external users so that they can retrieve information about the APIs, view their schemas, and learn how to access and interact with these APIs.
A developer portal consists of two components:
- Developer portal backend: The portal server that you deploy exposes an API that you can use to access and work with a developer portal resource.
- Developer portal frontend: The frontend is a user-facing application that renders the information about the APIs that the portal server exposes in a developer portal. This way, your users can interact with a graphical user interface to view APIs and create API keys.
