What Is API Access?

Secure your application data

API access is the process of ensuring that calls with authenticated logins are able to access the APIs. API products are also a good way to control access to a specific bundle of resources.

Apigee API management solution empowers you to allow or deny access to your APIs, by specific IP addresses. Since API products are the central mechanism for authorization and access control to your APIs, Apigee helps provision API keys for them.

When an app attempts to access an API product, authorization is enforced by Apigee at runtime. Using Apigee API access control measures, you can:

  • allow access to a particular API resource
  • check if the requesting app has not gone beyond the permitted quota
  • match OAuth scopes with those associated with the access tokens given by the app.
