An application is a logical representation of an physical application such as mobile app, webapp, device etc. If an application to consume an API, it should subscribe to the required API over a selected business plan, which determined the usage quota the application is allowed to have. A single application can have multiple API subscriptions. Each application has consumer key and consumer secret pair and the requests to the subscribed APIs are authenticated via the tokens generated using them.
Applications allow you to:
- Generate and use a single key for multiple APIs
- Subscribe multiple times to a single API with different Service Level Agreements (SLAs)/business plans which operate on per access token basis
The API Manager comes with a pre-created default application, which allows unlimited access by default. You can also create your own.
