  3. Select System Configuration > General Setup > Application Settings in the menu to the left.


    For faster navigation between the configuration menu sections, use Quick Search.

  5. In the Web API section, select the required options:

    • Enable API — enables the back-office API feature for your application.

    • Enable Storefront API — enables the storefront API feature for your application.


    The back-office API feature can be toggled on the global and organization levels, while the storefront API configuration is available on three levels - globally, per organization, and per website.
