Understand the APIs List Page

The APIs List page displays all APIs created in the Management Portal.

The information you see on this page and the tabs for an API depend on the grants that you have. For example, if you are an API Manager with the View Details Grant, you will only be able to view the Publication tab.

Entries for APIs display the following information:

  • The name, version, and description of the API.
  • The state of the API: Alpha, Beta, Deprecated, Released, or Retired.
  • The date and time the API was last updated. The time is displayed in the time zone of your Time Zone preference settings.
  • The publication status of the API: Published, Never Published, or Unpublished.
  • The deployment status of the API: Deployed or Not Deployed.
  • The usage status of the API: the number of plans through which the API is available.

When you hover the mouse over an API in the list and click the Show Details arrow, the following details are displayed:

  • The date and time the API was created and which user created it.
  • The date and time the API was last updated and which user updated it.
  • If deployed, a link to the gateway where the API endpoint is deployed.
  • If published, a link to the page on the Developer Portal.

If you have a long list of items on the page, you can search or sort the list to find the item you want.

  • Sort: Use the Top or Bottom option to go to the top or bottom of the listed items.

  • Search: Use the Search field to do a simple search by entering the name of the item you want to find and pressing Enter. The search finds items with names that start with the text. It also looks for the following delimiters in the name: '+', '.', '-', and '_'. Any item that has a name that starts with the search term or has a fragment it in that contains a delimiter followed by the search term is returned in the result list. For example, if you search for the term Test, all of these item names would appear in the result list: test, TestAPI, Sample.Test, Sample_Test, Example Test, and Advanced-Test-Service.

    If you want to match exact text, you can enclose the text in quotes. For example, to find an item called Test, enter "test" in the Search field. This type of search is not case sensitive, so it will find either test or Test; however, it will not find TestAPI or Sample Test.

  • Advanced Search: Use the Advanced link to create an advanced search query. The link displays a list of fields you can search which are appropriate for the page, such as Created By, Description, or Version. Enter text in the fields to search and click Apply to apply all the conditions.


    Note that the available fields will vary, depending on which list page you are on.

  • Saving a Search: Once you have performed a search, the conditions you used for the search appear at the top of the list, along with Save and Clear links. To save the search, click the Save link and enter a name for the search. You can also choose to use it as the default search for the page. To use a saved search, click the list arrow next to the Search field and select the search you want to apply.


    If you set a search as a default for a page, the results of that default search appear when you navigate to that page. To view all items, you must clear the search.

  • Editing a Search: To edit the conditions that a search uses, apply the search, and then add or delete conditions as desired. Save the search with the same name.
