The IPS Community Suite REST API provides a way for you to remotely interface with the content of your community.

Click the "Create New" button to create an API key, and fill out the form.
The REST API provides access to low-level functions and has the potential to cause significant damage to your community. Never share your API key and make sure that the source code for your API implementation is well protected. We also recommend locking your API key to the IP addresses which you will send requests from.
