Important changes coming to the V2 JSON API on 1/31/2017
Previously the API documentation said that the API would return both published and unpublished content. But in reality it was only returning published content.
With this update the following rules will apply:
- Users with authoring rights will be able to access both published and unpublished content.
- Users with read-only access (Reader and API Access users) will only see published content.
Make sure that any integration you are building is filtering published/unpublished content as necessary.
Previously API tokens could be used to authenticate any user on your account. It is important to understand that API tokens are account wide.
With this update API tokens can only be used for Admin and Author users.
Reader or API Access users should use their username/password to authenticate.
