Manage API Plans

This article describes the concept of API plans and provides examples of single and multiple-API plan scenarios.
API plans control the rates at which your applications can access individual APIs, both private and public. Portal Admins and API Owners can add, edit, and delete API plans.
Portal Admins, API Owners, Org Admins, and Developers can:
  • View the details for an API plan, such as the description and rate and quota limits.
  • Choose an API plan for APIs to which their application subscribes.
    For more information, see View and Choose API Plans.
