Adding Base URLs

All API endpoints are relative to a base URL, which is added as a "prefix" to all API endpoints. This approach avoids the need to always define absolute URLs for endpoints, and increases API portability by simply changing the base URL. This base URL is where RapidAPI will route requests.

To enter a base URL:

  1. Navigate to the Provider Dashboard (My APIs).
  2. In the sidebar, click the Definition tab for your API.
  3. Click the API Specs tab.
  4. Click the Settings tab.
  5. Under Base URL, click Configure.
