User permissions in API Central Service

When API Central Service access is provisioned, all users in the AMPLIFY platform organization have access to the service, and their permissions are dynamically created at first login. The user that is used to provision the API Central Service instance (for example, AMPLIFY platform administrator) automatically has the following API Central Service administrator roles:

  • API Central admin
  • Runtime admin

Other AMPLIFY platform users (for example, developers) will be added to a API Central Service team (for example, in a default API developer role). The API Central Service administrator has access to all teams and can assign users to teams and roles as necessary.

Sample API Central Service data

When API Central Service access is provisioned, some sample API Central Service data is also created, for example:

  • Default team
  • Sample API proxy
  • Sample test and production runtime groups
