API creation is the process of linking an existing backend API implementation to the API Publisher so that you can manage and monitor the API's lifecycle, documentation, security, community and subscriptions. Alternatively, you can provide the API implementation in-line in the API Publisher itself.
For a description of the concepts that are used when creating an API, (e.g., API visibility, resources, throttling tiers, sequences, endpoints etc.), see Introducing the Concepts.
If you have not registered to the API Cloud yet, go to https://cloud.wso2.com/ and sign up. The steps below show how to create a new API.
