This page lists the endpoints available in Joomla by example of curl commands.

Every URL requires authentication unless designated a public URL. For security in Joomla 4.0.0 we plan to make the default Api Application require a Super User account (as the API Application is brand new), this may get relaxed as the API stabilizes and is well tested in the community. If you are using the basic authentication plugin (currently the only shipped plugin as of Joomla 4 alpha 10) it requires the addition to the curl commands below using --user user_name:password

Every URL needs to be prepended with the Joomla host before the path (e.g. instead of /api/index.php/v1/article you need http://example.com/api/index.php/v1/article)

Any names of properties in curly brackets ({}) indicate the property is a variable that should be substituted.

Unless otherwise noted these APIs were introduced in Joomla 4. For more information on the Joomla API Specification (as opposed to this list of URLs and options) please visit the Joomla Api Specification.
