The API can be configured through the dashboard using the "Application Interface" menu found in the "Forums Settings" section. Here you can see the main API endpoint and you can re-generate the application secret used for signature based authentication.
Vanilla API contains endpoint mappings for most controller methods found in the Dashboard, Vanilla, and Conversations applications.
Vanilla API supports two different authentication methods: A semi-stateless session based method as well as a stateless signature based method. The former is best used when doing
client <-> server communication whereas the latter is good for
server <-> server communication.
Vanilla API allows you to easily integrate your own plugins and applications with the API Mapper - it's as simple as creating a new API class and putting it anywhere in your application or plugin where the Garden autoloader can find it.
