What is the Consumer API?

Tachyon exposes an API called Consumer API and any software accessing this API is a Consumer. Tachyon comes with several preinstalled Consumers, like the Tachyon Explorer interface. If you access the Consumer API using an API testing tool, like Fiddler or Postman, these tools are also considered Consumers. Every Tachyon UI uses the Consumer API. There are no separate, special API endpoints for the Tachyon Explorer or any other built-in Consumer. If the built-in Consumer can do something, your Consumer will be able to do it. You'll have to create a Consumer that you'll use and make sure that it's present in your license.

Please contact to set up a feature in your license that will contain your Consumer.
