Segment your developer team within the same cluster into workspaces with all relevant API entities. Allow each team to manage their own entities and access their own developer portal without disrupting each other’s operations.

Restrict authorization and access to routes and services to only what users need to do their jobs. Allow teams to customize and enforce necessary access controls for each workspace.
