Defining your API security

Define security schemes for your API, resources, and operations.


  1. Click the name of your API to go to the general information.

    In this example, the Petstore API is secured by petstore_auth with the scope write:pets.
  3. Click Save.

    Alternatively, you can select an operation to define its specific security.
