Publishing projects

Once you have finished building your project, you are ready to make it public, first for testing, then for production.

Making the project public means making the project's endpoints (the API) available to generate actual responses to requests. Most importantly, it also allows you to test your API with a working cURL or Powershell command.

Xapix provides several ways to publish the project, depending on the context in which you are working in Xapix. You can publish the project from either from the Project dashboard or from the Pipeline dashboard.

Publishing from the Project dashboard

When you create a new project, prepare it and are ready to publish it, you can use the project assistant to guide you through the steps needed to set up your project.

Publishing from the Pipeline Dashboard

You normally publish projects from within the Pipeline Dashboard. You can do this as often as required. If Xapix found any errors in your pipeline, it will alert you to them.
