Monetization Policy

The Monetization policy allows you to track and monetize the usage of our API resources, declaratively and programatically.


This policy is in beta. You can use it today, but it may change in non-backward compatible ways before the final release.


The configuration shows how to configure the policy in the 'policies.json' document.
