View and Choose API Plans

Org Admins and Developers can limit individual API consumption within an application by subscribing the application to an API plan. This article describes how Org Admins and Developers can:
  • View the details for an API plan (such as the description, rate, and quota limits).
  • Choose an API plan for visible APIs.
Permissions for Choosing an API Plan
By default, Org Admins and Developers can add APIs and choose API plans for their applications. The Org Admin can also create applications.
If the Portal Admin or API Owner has enabled the Edit Application Request Workflow setting, the Org Admin and Developer can still edit applications but the change will be pending until the Portal Admin or API Owner's approves the change.
