This guide will walk you through the easy process of adding your API to RapidAPI by using the Provider Dashboard. Listing your API exposes it to over a million developers in a matter of minutes! The RapidAPI Provider Dashboard is our main hub for adding and managing APIs.
To add an API click Add New API on the left-hand side of the dashboard.
In the first screen, you'll specify the API Name, a Short Description that appears in search, and the API's Category.
Each API belongs to a single category, such as SMS or Translation. Categories are a mechanism used to help organize and discover APIs.
There are several different options for specifying your API. By default, an API will use the UI definition through RapidAPI. If you would like to automate this process by uploading an API spec file, simply select "OpenAPI" and upload your OpenAPI file.
Within Open API Provisioning, we currently support:
- swagger: “2.0”
- openapi: “3.0.0"
- openapi: “3.0.1”
- openapi: "3.0.2"
You can also choose to import a Postman Collection by simply uploading the Postman Collection file.
RapidAPI supports GraphQL APIs, so you can specify using a GraphQL Schema if applicable.
- Chose a name that is easily discoverable and descriptive
- Capitalize the API's name
- Remove API from the name
