Site API

The Site API is a general access gateway into the majority of the platform's api functionality.

This API exposes two levels of access privileges ( public and private ). Depending on the context/action for the API call only certain operations will be available for the public access level. All API functionality will be available for the private access level.

The two access levels have been implemented so that developers can implement calls to the API via javascript using the public key from within the website. These calls will be under the context of the currently logged in user, or will only allow minimal privileges to other Modules/areas of the API for the public access level.

The public API key does not have to be kept private. However the private API key has full privileges to the API and should only be given out to developers/individuals who should have access to the full functionality of the API.
