Role-Based API Editing Rights

The new feature that we have just rolled out allows teams to separate who can edit and publish which APIs. Suppose you have a fairly large project or even a set of projects and they have different APIs. The chances are that different APIs are owned by different teams. Up until now, there was no way to let teams edit and publish just their APIs and not APIs belonging to their colleagues. Now all you have to do is:
  1. Set up the roles for each team and add their members to the roles,
  2. Ask the teams to set their APIs' Access Control setting to Restricted by roles, and then provide their role name in the Visible to Role field (both of these can be found at the Design step of API editing):

This new feature nicely compliments the ability to select which subscribers can see which APIs in the Developer Portal (API Store). Give the new feature a try in WSO2 API Cloud and let us know what you think!
