Space API

Space API can be used by Space users and Administrators to:

  • Share content and data with third-party apps.

  • Import data (e.g. articles, user profile records) from other resources.

  • Manage users, teams, locations and more programmatically.

  • Integrate Space repositories with external services (e.g. receive build statuses from a CI server).

For details, refer to API Reference or use HTTP API Playground (see below).

HTTP API Playground

On the navigation bar, click ... to expand the menu and choose HTTP API Playground:


Visit the interactive API playground page to:

  • See HTTP API endpoints.

  • See authentication endpoints.

  • See supported methods and syntax.

  • Experiment with methods — execute requests and view responses.

Access to Space API

  • The primary way of providing access to Space API is through the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

    Space supports common authorization scenarios that are based on standard OAuth 2.0 authorization flows.

    The flow your application client will use depends on the application type and authorization scenario. All flows involve registering a client application with Space and require a client to obtain an access token to access Space resources.

    Read OAuth 2.0 Authorization for details.

  • The other way of providing access is to use a personal token. Personal token authorization is easier to implement, but is less secure and can only be used to access Space resources on behalf of the Space user who owns the token.
