A status represents the state of a developer and the access they have to the Dev Portal and APIs:
- A developer who can access the Dev Portal. Approved developers can create credentials & access all APIs that allow those credentials.
- A developer who has requested access but has not yet been Approved.
- A developer who has had their request denied by a Kong admin.
- A developer who once had access to the Dev Portal but has since had access Revoked.
Developers who have requested access to a Dev Portal will appear under the Requested Access tab. From this tab, you can choose to Accept or Reject the developer from the actions in the table row. After selecting an action, the corresponding tab is updated.
