Content API

The fully documented content delivery and management API of your RESTful service is created dynamically when you create your service. The API documentation of each service contains information about the types that you have included in your service, for both built-in and dynamic types.

You can access it on demand via the User Interface of your Sitefinity CMS instance.

To access the Content service API, you need to:

  1. Setup a RESTful service.
    For more information, see Setup a service.
  2. In Sitefinity CMS backend, navigate to Administration » Web services.
  3. Locate the service that you have created and click its Use in your app link.
    In the left pane, you can see all the types that are included in your web service.
  4. Click a type to display all available information for each type of request.
    The information includes query string, URI parameters, resource description, resource format, and more.

Following is a sample snippet of the GET Images API:
