OAuth2 has become the industry standard for secure API access, and is the default security mechanism that you get for your API subscribers in WSO2 API Cloud. API Cloud fully automates OAuth key generation and management. However, there are circumstances when you might want to temporarily have your APIs available with no security required. For example, this might be the way you decide to launch them initially while you are still on the prototype phase. WSO2 API Cloud gives you two ways of achieving this:
- By publishing your API as Prototype, or
- By setting required resource authentication level to None.
- Pick Prototype on the second step of API creation (Implement),
- Click Deploy as Prototype.
