Audiences are a useful tool for segmenting your API for different consumers. Common audiences include:
- Internal consumers (e.g. frontend developers who use the API)
- Beta testers
Fern has a first-class concept for marking different endpoints for different audiences:
service: base-path: /users auth: true endpoints: sendEmail: audiences: # <--- - external path: /send-email ...
To prevent typos, you must specify all your audiences in
name: api audiences: - external
generators.yml, you can apply audience filters so that only certain
endpoints are passed to the generators:
groups: external: audiences: # <--- - external generators: ...
By default, if no audiences are specified, then all endpoints are passed to the generators.
