Disabling API Console/Swagger tools menu available from store console for anonymous/logged in users

If you need to disable the API Console/Swagger from the Store UI for anonymous users/logged in users, you can try out the below methods.

There is no straightforward configuration readily available with API Manager to do this. However, by doing a minor config change, this is possible. What you actually need to do is change the code of the block.jag which resides under wso2am-1.8.0/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/store/site/blocks/api/api-info folder.

Method 1

Assuming you want the API Console (RESTClient) to be disable for anonymous users only, this can be done by changing/adding the below lines of code to the block.jag.

Step 1
Change the below code of line from

var showConsole=true;

var showConsole=false;

Step 2
Then add the below lines of code right after the line _var showConsole=false;_


Method 2

If you need this feature to be completely invisible for anonymous and logged in users, all you have to do is change the below code.
Change the parameter from

var showConsole=true;

var showConsole=false;

Once the above changes are done, restart the API manager server and you will notice that the RESTClient tool is visible only to logged in users/not visible at all for anyone.

How to create custom references(usedBy, ownedBy, etc) that can be used to associate artifacts in WSO2 Governance Registry 5.3.0 onward

This support was available from G-Reg 5.3.0 onward. For more information, refer [1].

1. Added a new rxt with the below config.

<artifactType hasNamespace="true" iconSet="10" pluralLabel="Tests" shortName="tests"
singularLabel="Test" type="application/vnd.wso2-tests+xml">
                <column name="Name">
                    <data href="@{storagePath}" type="path" value="details_name"/>
            <table name="Details">
                <field required="true" type="text">
                <field required="true" type="text">
                <field required="true" type="text">
                <field required="true" type="text">
2. From the publisher, added a new artifact of type tests (I've added a test artifact by the name Test3)
3. Added the below config to the <G-REG_HOME</repository/conf/governance.xml file;
<tests reverseAssociation ="tests" iconClass="fw-globe">tests</tests>
so that the <Association type="soapservice"> looks like what's given below.

        <Association type="soapservice">
            <security reverseAssociation ="secures" iconClass="fw-security">policy</security>
            <ownedBy reverseAssociation ="owns" iconClass="fw-user">soapservice,restservice,wsdl</ownedBy>
            <usedBy reverseAssociation ="depends" iconClass="fw-globe">soapservice,restservice,wsdl</usedBy>
            <depends reverseAssociation ="usedBy" iconClass="fw-store">soapservice,restservice,wsdl,endpoint</depends>
            <contacts reverseAssociation ="refers" iconClass="fw-globe">contacts</contacts>
            <tests reverseAssociation ="tests" iconClass="fw-globe">tests</tests>

4. From the publisher, try to select the added test type artifact for your SOAP service. I typed in the name Test3 and it would list to be selected and added as an association for the SOAP Service.

Note that as mentioned in our documentation when doing the above, you need to add the values you defined as short name in the RXT file of the artifact, within the <Association type> element, to define the association types enabled for that particular asset type
