# API Platform
Turn callable recipes into endpoints and organize the endpoints into API collections, making it easier for users to find and consume the endpoints through other recipes or third-party apps, without requiring access to your Workato account. Additionally, API publishers can control who has access the endpoints, as well as monitor and set limits on usage.
Watch the video below for an introduction to the API Platform.
Access the API Platform from the Tools menu. It is available as an add-on feature; if you do not see the API Platform in the Tools menu, reach out to your Customer Success Manager.
# Key concepts and features
|Access Policies||An Access Policy can be used to set restrictions on the usage of an API. A single policy can be associated with one or more Access Profiles. Learn more about Access policies|
|Access Profiles||A single client can have one or more Access Profiles. An Access Profile specifies one or more API Collections to which the client has access, and is optionally associated with an Access Policy. Learn more about Access profiles|
|API collections||Endpoints are organized into API Collections. An API Collection is a set of endpoints that can be managed together. Learn more about API collections|
|API tokens||An API token grants access to all the API Collections within an Access Profile. Technically, an API token is a string that is passed in the HTTP header with the name `API-Token`. Learn more about API tokens|
|Clients||A client is a user to whom access to one or more API collections can be granted. Learn more about clients|
|Dashboard||A customizable tool to visualize real-time data on API collections and endpoints. Learn more about the Dashboard|
|Endpoints||An endpoint is a single callable REST interface. It has an associated public URL. Calls to the URL initiate a recipe that has a Callable Recipe trigger. Learn more about endpoints|
|Library||The library is a catalog of APIs that are discoverable by other users in your organization. Learn more about the Library|
