Elevate Your API Design Experience

API design API design teams often encounter significant challenges when integrating design changes from various sources while striving to maintain transparency in requirements. The following Xapi features facilitate a structured yet flexible API design process:

  • API Editor: Xapi's tooling supports the OpenAPI 3.1.0 specification, offering features like the API Diff View for comparing old and new API codes side-by-side, creating standard-compliant API documentation, and enabling collaborative conversations on API designs.
  • Kanban: Xapi’s Kanban Board provides a central view of parallel API design tasks.
  • API Models: Shareable API Models streamline the design process while ensuring backward compatibility through API versioning.

Streamlined API Review Process

API reviewing is a strenuous process, involving chasing API designers for updates while ensuring compliance with technical standards and business requirements. Xapi simplifies the review process with a permission system that controls designers' actions.

Once an API is in the review status, designers cannot make changes without reviewer’s consent. Xapi's Kanban Board enforces a standard review process, while the API Diff View helps you identify inconsistencies or changes.

Collaborative comments and replies facilitate direct communication with designers, fostering collaboration for a more robust and usable API.

Interact with Your Internal and External Stakeholders

Xapi caters to the diverse requirements of various stakeholders, including API consumers. Whether internal or external, seamlessly engage with your stakeholders.
