Configuring sub paths for Developer Portal sites
You can increase the specificity of a IBM® API Connect Developer Portal site URL by using sub paths.
By adding additional text to the URL of a Developer Portal site, you can create more site permutations for an organization. Developer Portal site URLs must be unique across all Catalogs.
Important:You can create a Developer Portal in the following format:
- Sub paths are case-sensitive.
- The Developer Portal host name must contain only lowercase characters.
Where sub_path can be any text that you want to implement to specify your site URL. There is no limit to the number of sub paths that you can have for the first site that you want to create.
However, you must not create overlaps in the naming of your URLs. A URL of one site must not be able to be confused with pages belonging to another site. For example, if you create the following site URL:

For example, if you create the following site URL:
then, you cannot create the following site URL:
