Users API

Authorization

Our REST API service uses a key based authorization that could be managed in your Account page. You can find your own API key in form of a 64 character string, and note that we will be able to identify you with it, so please do not share it.

To generate it, simply go to the path /core/dashboard/sites#api_key and hit the "Generate" button.

You can also generate a new key or disable the API key generation entirely afterwards.

All client requests are authorized using valid API keys via an specific HTTP header or query string. Query string takes priority over HTTP header, so query string will be considered if you send both at the same time.

Sending API key via query string

In order to authorize requests using "api_key" query string, you need to send it as follows:

<HTTP-METHOD> <domain>/api/<version>/<path>?api_key=<api_key> 

Sending API key via HTTP header

In order to authorize requests using HTTP header named "X-RMAuth", you need to perform as follows:

<HTTP-METHOD> <domain>/api/<version>/<path> X-RMAuth: <api_key> 

Unauthorized requests

If you send invalid API keys, you are going to get a response with HTTP 403 Forbidden status and the following payload:

{ "status": { "code": null, "messages": ["API key is not valid"] }, "data": null }

In 2022, Publishers Take Back Control With Subscription Success

Users are ready to pay for content that delivers

The Rise of the Mature User

It's been a long and winding path, but in 2022 the subscription model continues its upward trajectory as a top revenue strategy for publishers of all sizes. The tug of war between platforms and publishers reached its peak in the last few years of the previous decade, leaving users desperate for a modern user experience that's clear of any clutter from the duopoly that is Google and Facebook. This is why intelligent paywall models are a top choice for users looking to consume content right from the source. When done correctly, the strategy can work for any type of media. The New York Times, a frequent showpiece example of the power of paywalls, is constantly reporting record-busting subscription numbers, with 7.6 million digital subscriptions in 2021.

And it all makes perfect sense. The subscription model eliminates the middleman — such as the platforms — so readers get the experience and content they want, and publishers get the cash they need.
