2 Feature Detail

2.1 API Consumer

In practical scenarios, many apis are not fully exposed to all users. For example, different user groups have different access to different APIs from a security perspective.
API Consumer can help cusotmer to identifies the source of requests based on a unique consumer ID. By associating different APIs with different consumers, customers can manage the access permission of API assets more efficiently.

2.2 How It Works

After the API consumer is created, API Shield will generate a consumer ID. As long as the end user carries this ID in the request, it will be recognized by our platform.
