API Cards

The API Catalog screen exhibits all existing APIs through cards showing basic information regarding each API.

card api

Each card includes the API name (in the example above, "Swagger Petstore"), its version (in the example, "1.0.0") and a brief description. The plans linked to each API are shown in the respective field.

The buttons on the bottom of the card allow access to some functionalities, which you can check below.

Edit Swagger

icon swagger

This button allows the user to view and edit the API in Swagger format to make changes in its structure through a Swagger editor. For more information, check the documentation about Swagger Editor.

Download Swagger

icon download swagger

It allows downloading the API Swagger file in JSON format.

API Trace

icon trace

It redirects the user to the API Trace page (where all requests to the API can be viewed).

The API Trace page accessed through the card works as a filter of the General Trace menu. While the latter shows the requests to all registered APIs, API Trace displays the requests made to the specific API at hand.

Clone API

icon clone api

This button is used to create a new API using the data of the current one, including its resources and interceptors. When cloning an API, the name and version of the clone must be changed.

clone api

Create Version

icon create version

This button is used to generate a new version of the API. Upon clicking it, a new screen is opened, with all fields of data filled to make the creation of the new version easier. The user can alter the data, if necessary, and follow the regular flow of creating a new API.

API Timeline

icon timeline

This button opens the Timeline page, which shows all changes made to the API chronologically.


You can filter the alterations by date and type:

timeline filters

With the filters, the user can customise the visualisation of changes, which helps to keep track of what has been deployed and of unwanted changes.

In the example above, we are filtering the results by changes in resources and operations.

Some modifications in an API already deployed to an environment are accompanied by "undeploy" and "deploy" notifications on the timeline. This happens because the API is automatically removed and re-deployed so that the modification in its registry is saved (such as a new description or change of visibility context, for example). This does not cause unavailability of the API.
