Generating Public API Keys

Getting Started



In this documentation, you will learn only how to generate Public API Keys in Dorik CMS.

Basically, Dorik’s "API Keys’" feature allows users to connect with other applications (e.g. Zapier, Pabbly, Make, etc.) on the web from where users can maintain their resources without coming back to their Dorik website. The endpoints created can allow any authenticated user/platform to perform create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) actions.

However, for now, Public API Key can be used to fetch data from your CMS collections, collection items, and collection fields as a beta service.
