    Hello,

     

    If your portal version is 3.5, it seems the following page of the documentation has the procedure.

     

    https://docops.ca.com/ca-api-developer-portal/3-5/en/manage-the-api-portal/manage-apis/use-private-apis

     

    Assigning/Removing Access to Private APIs

    You can grant organizations access to private APIs. All of that organization's users will then have access to:

    • API documentation associated with the private API
    • Forums associated with the private API
    • API Explorer capabilities for the private API

    To assign access to a private API:

    1. On the Dashboard, select Organizations.
    2. Select the check box next to the organization(s) to be granted access. 
    3. From the Actions menu, choose Assign Private API and then click Apply
    4. Select one or more private APIs from the list. Tip: Hold down the Ctrl key to select more than one line. 
    5. Click Add. The selected APIs are displayed under "Assign APIs". 
    6. Click Apply
      All of the organizations you selected now have access to the private APIs you assigned. 

     

    Best regards,
    Seiji

    Hi

     

    I just checked in portal 4.2 you can only select one organization to a private API.

     

    However you can assign a private API to a account plan and a account plan can contain multiple organisations .

     

    Have a look at

    Regards

    Were you able to resolve the issue? What was the final result?

    Dear Stephen

    I still can't  resolve the issue however somebody suggested me to assign a private API to a account plan and a account plan can contain multiple organisations instead which is not what I need to do.

     

    Thanks,

    For API Portal 4.2, private API's are assigned to organizations via their Account Plan. 

     

    In the Account Plan you can select which Private API's are included, and then for organisation's that uses that account plan they can see the private API's. 

     

    There was an enhancement request, that covers adding some flexibility when adding private API's to groups, and how that affects the group's visibility : 

     

    API Portal 4.2 - better control over public/private visibility of API Groups
