Using the monetization API

The base path of the monetization API is The URL of all monetization requests starts with the monetization base path followed by the path of the target resource.

For a complete list of monetization APIs, see Monetization APIs.

The following provides an example:

$ curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d \
 "tncText":"Sample text for the T&C", 
}' \
"{org_name}/tncs" \
-u email:password

Examples of the monetization APIs are provided using cURL throughout the documentation. You can copy and paste the sample commands into your command-line terminal. After you copy and paste the command to your terminal, you must replace the variables in the command with information for your Apigee Edge account. For example, in the example above, you would need to replace the following variables:

  • {org_name}: The name of your organization.
  • email: The email address for your Apigee Edge account.
  • password: The password for your Apigee Edge account.
