An ApiFolder is identical to a Follder node and is used to group nodes of another types (ApiRoute in this case).

There are two ways to create an ApiFolder node:

  • Adding it from the ApiRootFolder node context menu;

  • Using import from API description format.

An ApiFolder node has the following context menu:

  • Add node. Click on it to add a child node. You can choose a node type in the submenu.

  • Rename. Change the node name.

  • Duplicate. Make a copy of the node. The new node will be named NodeName [Copy [number]].

  • Remove node. Use it to delete the node.

  • Show in explorer. Open the folder with the node in the file manager.

‌The ApiFolder node tab has the following interface:
