Multiple services can be registered to a single application. In the Konnect Dev Portal, services registered to an application are listed in an application’s detail page. You can find all applications in your account by clicking My Apps from the dropdown menu beneath your login email in the Dev Portal.
The purpose of registering services to an application is to consume those services using application-level authentication. Grouping authentication enables direct access to multiple services. The application can host multiple credentials or API keys. For more information about application credentials, refer to Generate Credentials for an Application.
In cloud.konghq.com, admins can access a list of the installed authentication plugins via the Gateway Manager. See Enable Application Registration for a Service for more information about authentication flows.
Once a developer is granted access to the Konnect Dev Portal, they can create, edit, and delete applications. These modifications are all managed on the My Apps page. My Apps allows you to view all of your registered applications. Clicking on individual applications from this page opens a detailed overview of an application.
You can perform the following actions from an application’s details page:
Edit the name, reference ID, and description of an application.
Generate or delete credentials.
- View a catalog of services that can be registered with the application, if no services are registered yet.
- View the status of an application registration to an API product.
- Open the analytics dashboard and view metrics about an application.
