1 What Is the Developer Portal?
The Developer Portal is one of the three key components of the Mendix Platform. The other two are Mendix Studio Pro and Mendix Studio. In the Developer Portal, Mendix developers can collaborate, deploy, and manage their apps, and manage their company and users.
The Developer Portal also offers open, well-defined APIs, enabling third-party developers to integrate their own widgets and plugins. For more information, see API Documentation.
You can navigate the menu items in the header:
In Apps, you can find your free and licensed apps, nodes, and other apps created by your company:
If you are an App Team member, you can go to the app Buzz. Here you can manage not only the deployment of the app itself but the entire development process via user stories which can be refined and allocated to Sprints.
