Stage a Product

Overview

This document outlines the procedure for republishing an API that has already been published but had some changes since publication. The API is bundled in a product, and the version of that product must be updated in order to republish the API. Those who have subscribed to the API will not need to re-subscribe as they will automatically get the updated API.
