API collections

This page explains API collections.


Introduction

An API collection refers to a group or set of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) that are organized and grouped together for a specific purpose. It's a convenient way to manage and document multiple APIs within a project, platform, organization or organizational unit.

API collections provide a structured approach to managing APIs.

API collections are commonly used in various contexts, such as:

  • Platform Development: Platforms that offer multiple APIs, such as social media platforms or cloud service providers, often provide API collections to developers. These collections help developers access different functionalities and services offered by the platform.

  • API Marketplaces: Some organizations curate collections of APIs from different providers and offer them through a marketplace. These collections simplify the process of discovering and using APIs for developers.

  • Internal Development: Within a company or organization, API collections can be used to manage and coordinate APIs developed by different teams. They provide a centralized reference and promote consistency across the organization's software projects.

Overall, an API collection serves as a comprehensive resource for developers, offering a consolidated view of available APIs and facilitating their integration into software applications.
