Establishing a Developer App for Apigee

About this Hands-on Lab

Apigee is a full-featured API management platform. As such, it has the ability to create not only API proxies, but also the entire eco-system needed to support, test, and access proxies. Part of the ecosystem are the apps that will consume an API through the proxy. These apps do not connect directly to the proxy, however. Rather, an API product bundles one or more API proxies, and apps connect to the API product. In this hands-on lab, we will set up an app and the related components: the API product and the app developer.

Additional Resources

Your API proxy is ready for testing, so you've been asked to set up an app that can securely access the proxy. You know that establishing such an app requires additional elements, including a developer and an API product. You begin creating the necessary components with the goal of registering the app and generating a custom API key.

You’ll need to complete the following steps to accomplish your task:

  1. Create an API product for your API proxy.
  2. Register a developer.
  3. Register an app assigned to the developer.
  4. Grant the app access to the API product.

Please note: There are several prerequisites for this hands-on lab:

  1. You must have an Apigee account.
