Content API

Changed in version 1.5.

There is a major refactoring ongoing for Content API. Major changes are:

  • Less configuration

    it will publish to content api without additional config on subscriber side

  • Better integration

    simplified install, no need to clone another repository, just another process

  • Supports JSON only

    dropping XML support

  • Re-uses Superdesk media storage

    there is no duplication of binaries

  • Auth everywhere

    avoiding some extra resources which were without authentication


You can check available configuration in Content API Settings. For generating auth tokens SECRET_KEY setting is required.

Running Content API

You can use content_api.wsgi module in Procfile:

capi: gunicorn -b$PORT content_api.wsgi
