Developer portals with social publishing features are increasingly being used for communication with the developer community. This includes communicating static content, such as API documentation and terms-of-use, as well as dynamic community-contributed content such as blogs and forums.
As an API provider, we need a way to expose our APIs, educate developers about our APIs, sign up developers, and let developers register apps. Exposing our APIs to developers is only part of creating a truly dynamic community. We also need a way for our developer community to provide feedback, make support and feature requests, and submit their own content that can be accessed by other developers. the developer portal lets you create API documentation, supports blogging, and provides threaded forums. We can also customize the developer portal to meet your specific requirements. Customization lets you modify the portal appearance and also the way that developers interact with the portal.
API Developer Portal simplifies API discovery for developers and provides them with access to enterprise data so they can get to building apps fast. In the portal we can manage developer registration and API consumption through business plans and packages which can be monetized. Developers can engage with interactive development and educational tools including an API catalog, sample applications, mobile device SDKs and code generation—all designed to help streamline the development process.
