Lightroom Classic: Lightroom ACR API

How can I get access to the below API?

https://adobedocs.github.io/lightroom-api-docs/

In the Adobe Developer console I see the Lightroom / Camera Raw API is greyed our on the bottom right. Is this the API which is needed?

I've been unsuccessful in getting any substantive information about the Creative Cloud APIs over the past several years -- it's a black hole.

 

Your screenshot is what appears when you're at console.adobe.io and while editing a project, you click Add To Project > API, then change View By from Available To You to All. 

 

The only thing I could find by googling was this thread from 5/18/2020:

https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-i-o-console-questions/how-to-access-lightroom-camera-raw-api/qaq-p/356284 

 

The employee's answer implied the Lightroom / Camera Raw API was in beta, and she referred the poster to this:

https://medium.com/adobetech/how-to-join-creative-cloud-prerelease-programs-ccecc10ae7d3

 

But there's no mention of there of the Lightroom / Camera Raw API :-<

This is absolutely correct even in 2021. Here is also ACR discussion with the same result https://experienceleaguecommunities.adobe.com/t5/adobe-i-o-console-questions/how-can-i-buy-acr-apis/qaq-p/356830/comment-id/56#M56

Somebody spent time and money to build this API, but nobody can use it. I like this world :)
