The steps below explain how to modify an API's source code and delete an API.


Editing an API

You can create an API using the API Publisher Web interface. To edit an API, you select the API in the API Publisher and then click the Edit link next to its name. Similarly, most common configurations of the APIs are facilitated through the Web UI. But


The Edit link is only visible to users with creator privileges. See Managing Users and Roles.

However, if you want to do more advanced configurations to this API to customize it further, you have to go into its code-level configurations. You can do this using the steps given below.


Instead of editing the configuration through the UI, you can directly edit the file saved in <APIM_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/synapse-configs/default/api folder as well.

Deleting an API

Follow the instructions below to delete an API from the API Store through the API Publisher Web interface.
