The REST APIs provide programmatic access to read and write data to your Joomla web application. Create pages, managed users, build SSO and more. The REST API identifies Joomla applications and users using both basic user / password authentication or API tokens; responses are available in JSON.
Visit our changelog for details on our latest update for cAPI v1.2.7.
As of version v1.2.5, cAPI exposed a collection of service routes to allow complete remote management of access tokens.
Check out our Swagger UI documentation for Token methods here: https://demo1.getcapi.io/api-docs#!/Token
cAPI now supports either standard Joomla user authentication or token authentication. The Services Control Panel allows for creation of tokens on a per-user basis (or even multiple tokens per Joomla user). Note that token authentication is required for some routes and to allow granular control over access parameters.
cAPI now allows the end user to configure the Slim micro-framework parameters and even include a threshold for the API rate-limiting functionality (currently based on requests-per-minute). It provides live feedback on the state of the API rate threshold within the response header.
If you find any issues with any version of the API, please use our forums or contact page to send your feedback.
