- An API metadata artifact is created in the WSO2 Governance Registry (for more information see Governance Artifacts).
- It has a LifeCycle that has Development, Testing and Production states.
- If any API comes to the Production state, and if the production API gets updated frequently, demote the API to Testing state. (In this case, if API is getting updated more than 3 times within 2 minutes, the API is demoted back to Testing state. This indicates that it should be tested more).
