View and Choose API Plans

As an OrgAdmin or Developer, you can select appropriate API Plans to limit individual API consumptions within your Applications.This section describes how an organization developer can:
  • View the details for the API Plan (such as a description, and rate and quota limits). 
  • Choose an API Plan for visible APIs.
Permissions for Assigning API Plans 
By default, OrgAdmin and Developer can update Applications to use different APIs and API Plans. OrgAdmin is also authorized to create new Applications.
