README and License

The Yappes API Manager lets you add README and license details for your API(s) when you onboard it. These details allow the provider to define APIs usage and ownership.

The README file contains information about the API’s functionality, how to use it, any dependencies or requirements, and examples of API requests and responses.

The license file allows you to define the terms and conditions under which the API can be used. It specifies the rights and restrictions imposed on the users of the API, ensuring compliance with legal and intellectual property considerations.

Including both a README file and a license file helps establish clarity, transparency, and proper usage guidelines for the API.

If you need to add/edit the README or license details of the onboarded API, follow the below steps:
