In the APIspage you can Consume APIs.
When do you use the Consume option?
Basically, you need to use this option when Aurachain connects to a web-service exposed by an external system/app. It consumes only WSDL and SWAGGER web-services.
Where do I set it up?
You can set an API either on a Call Activity element in the Diagramspage or by adding it to a Button API defined in the Interface Builder page.
