Edit general information about your API version and define its media types, endpoints and security schemes.

Procedure

  1. Access the general information page.
    This page opens automatically after creating your API. You can also open it by clicking the name of your API at the top of the left panel.
  2. Click pencil icon to the left of the GENERAL section to edit the version, the description, the contact and license information and the terms of service for your API.
    Note: The name of your API can be changed from the Talend Cloud API Designer homepage. For more information, see Renaming an API.
  3. Edit the MEDIA TYPES section to add or remove media types.
    The media types defined in this section are global, they are applied to the whole API version. They can also be defined at the operation level.
  4. Add your endpoint(s) in the ENDPOINTS section.
    The endpoints defined in this section are global, they are applied to the whole API version. Once they are defined, your endpoints appear below the name of your API in the top of the left panel, along with the mock endpoint if it is enabled.

    Published endpoints are visible in the live documentation and in the portal. The first published endpoint is also used when trying the API in Talend Cloud API Tester. For more information, see Trying your API in Talend Cloud API Tester. Endpoints that are not published are only visible in Talend Cloud API Designer.

    Note: If you have several endpoints, the first one in the list is used by default when you try your API in Talend Cloud API Tester. You can move an endpoint in the list by clicking the bar to the left of the URL and dragging it up or down.
  5. Define the security for the API in the GLOBAL SECURITY and SECURITY SCHEMES sections.
    The security defined in this section is global, it is applied to the entire API version. It can also be defined at the resource and operation levels.
  6. Click Save.
