Turning a Weather API into valuable API products

Identify use-cases to break your API into Weather products

Your API holds several use-cases and Blobr helps you put them in the spotlight. Connect in minutes your API, with an OpenAPI file or manually, and select the endpoints you want. Here, we took the localization endpoints to turn them into one API product providing geographical coordinates.

Monetize API products the way you want

For each product, you can choose the monetization model: metered or tiered, with or without overquota. Here, we’ve made an API product giving the current weather in any location free as a preview to the monetized 5-day weather forecast product, which is made free and then monetized with a tiered pricing. The Air pollution API product is monetized on a per-unit model.

Easing your API consumer experience

With Blobr Workflows, you can simply explain how to use and implement your API product. Your API consumers don’t have to scroll through the whole documentation and can find all the information they need at a glance. In this API product, the workflow explains the use of  endpoints, to get air pollution information in no time.

Manage your APIs, and your consumers

Provide a nice hub for your consumers

On the API portal, your consumers can also replay calls and contact you. They can also access invoices and manage their API key. On your side, you can give them access to all the API products you want: a private API product can be dedicated to the consumer of your choice.

Ensure painless API versioning for you and your consumers

Managing your APIs include managing new versions. With Blobr, you can add your version and instantly see how it affects your API products. Multiple versions can be ran side by side. And, to limit breaking change, Blobr automatically identify API consumers concerned by API changes and inform them by email.

Access the API logs and debug your consumers

On the activity logs, filtered by product and user, you can replay any call made by your API consumers. This way, you have all the information you need to quickly respond and debug your customers, which improves their satisfaction.

Get clear revenue analytics
