    Hi All,

    need some input or some guidance:
    we have APIC v5 but we will be moving to v10.

    We have this app creation right  once app is created , AppId/token/secret is generated. 

    Currently I am trying to explore how we can customize this page to :
    • Add more custom text fields to get the input from the consumer
    • I am trying to insert these custom fields to internal DB. 
      • so I am trying to find if we can connect to internal APIs which basically inserting to DB
      • or if we can connect to API gateway where we created custom policy which will insert it to DB

    I am currently exploring the Drupal but wanted to get some guidance.

    I would discourage any kind of customization of the developer portal in v5 at this stage, especially as you are planning on moving to v10.  Between versions the portal underwent a complete rewrite so any customizations on v5 would have to be reimplemented /rewritten when migrating to v10, also any custom data collected in the v5 database could not be migrated to v10.  This custom data is only sync'ed with apim from v10.  I would also discourage you from modifying the internal DB directly. 

    What you are trying to achieve would involve the addition of a custom field to the application content type in the developer portal.  There is a tutorial where something similar is performed for a user and inserted on the user sign up form - this could also be implemented for the application content type instead of for the user content type.  https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/api-connect/10.0.x?topic=tutorials-tutorial-adding-field-sign-up-form.
