An API must be deployed as a service before you can test it, or it can be used by clients.
To prepare to deploy a service:
- Create a user-defined API or determine which native API you wish to deploy
- Create an Access Control Policy for the service. Access Control Policies define what users can access the service and from what IP source addresses service requests can originate. An existing ACP may be used in more than one service. See Access Control Policies.
Once the API and Access Control Policy is determined, you can deploy the service.
