Info

When a user creates an application and subscribes to an API, a role is created automatically as shown below.

Code Block
"Application/<username>_<applicationName>_PRODUCTION"

These roles are not assigned any permissions when created. The application is visible only to users of that particular role. For other users to be able to view the application, a user with admin privileges has to assign the role to the users.
