Hi Russ,

Yep that would do it, Tyk dashboard keeps an index of APIs for orgs, it’s used for some internal organisational constraints.

Cheers,
Martin

Are you creating APIs as a super user?

Hi Russ,

If you are creating APIs as a super user BTW, don’t, it can go very wrong when generating policies and cause problems later when keys are using them (we’ve run into this with clients before, it’s a pain to resolve).

It’s strongly recommended to set up a Tyk stack using a regular org user. And only use super users for overall admin and bootstrapping across orgs.

Cheers,
Martin

I think I see the issue then…I’m not doing this as a super user, but I am doing this as a user in an org which I accidentally deleted. I’m gathering that error message has something to do with messing around with objects that belong to non-existent orgs…
