Guidebook offers a REST API to manage a subset of the resources available in the Guidebook Builder CMS. Our Open API uses resource-oriented urls, standard HTTP response codes, and HTTP verbs to segment different types of requests. The REST API is intended for content management.
To learn how to utilize the REST API, view our developer documentation.
Generating Your API Key
To access Guidebook’s Open API, you’ll need to include an API Key with your requests. You can manage your API Keys in the API Page of the Guidebook Builder CMS. These API Keys grant significant access to resources related to your account, so keep them secret! Do not share your API Keys with anyone, and do not place API Keys in publicly accessible areas like GitHub or client-side code.
You can obtain an API key from your profile in Builder.
Click on the profile dropdown in the top right corner of Builder and select "Manage your account."
Click on the API Key page in your profile and select "+ New key."
Click "Show token" and then copy the API key.
