An External Developer Portal (EDP), or Dev Portal, is a public API portal providing a self-service API ecosystem and enhancing collaboration between the organization and its partners. It offers public services documentation and secure access to these resources for external developers. An EDP gives support for both governance and security and facilitates agreements with 3rd parties on API usage.
Mia-Platform allows you to build your own Dev Portal with a set of ready-to-use components to set up your API catalog in a few clicks.
External API portals help organizations to:
Forge new business partnerships
Expand the reach of their APIs by creating partner communities
Showcase services with which they serve customers
Create new revenue models using API as a product
Make your Dev Portal with Mia-Platform ready-to-use plugins
The Dev Portal allows you to standardize high-quality services and best practices, by managing your whole tech ecosystem and exposing them to 3rd parties.
The Developer Portal makes building software faster with a self-service and secure catalog of standardized components. It is a tool to search, reuse, test, and document the available public services.

External Developer Portals enables extensibility and scalability by easily integrating new tools and services (via plugins), as well as extending the functionality of existing ones.
IDP vs EDP: can I have one portal?
Internal and external developers have different needs. With one portal you will struggle to manage all of the 3rd parties developers’ requests, adding more complexities to your IT organization. Having two different portals, allow you to provide a tailored experience for different kind of users.
IDP or Developer Hub
An Internal Developer portal acts as a hub where developers can discover and share APIs and services, as well as collaborate on their design and development. An IDP simplifies governance and encourages reuse. With extended capabilities, such as API microgateway, flow orchestrations, and container resource management, IDP can become a Developer Hub as Mia-Platform is.
EDP or Dev Portal
External Developer Portal is focused on creating a developer ecosystem around APIs and services, providing a catalog where 3rd parties developers can discover, test, and reuse APIs.
