Miradore API (Application Programming Interface) v2 is an HTTPS REST-based interface for integrating Miradore with other applications. API v2 provides access to resources via URL and it is suitable for CRUD (create, read, update and delete) operations in Miradore.
Miradore API v2 uses the authentication key which is sent to the server in the request’s HTTPS header “X-API-Key”.
The authentication key is a random string that can be generated from Miradore web console > System > Infrastructure diagram when the API feature is activated. Please read more about creating an authentication key from the article Getting started with API. See additional instructions about managing authentication keys from Adding API keys and Deleting API keys.
