Renaming APIs

You must be the API owner or a  designer to rename an API

To rename an API

  1. Open the API page.

  2. Click the API name. This will open the API Info panel.

  4. Enter a new name for the API:

  5. Click Rename API to confirm the renaming.


  • The API name is part of its URL on SwaggerHub. Renaming will change this URL. SwaggerHub will not redirect the old URL to the new one.

  • API designers and consumers get an email notification when an API is renamed.

  • If the renamed API has integrations configured, review the integration settings and then save the API again to trigger the integrations.

  • After renaming, you may need to perform additional actions. For example, if you use a Git repository whose name is based on the API name, you may want to rename that repository. This is not done automatically.
