Setka Content Cloud API

Setka Cloud API allows you to download HTML code and auxiliary data of posts saved in your Setka account.

To enable Cloud API, please contact support.

Working with posts when Cloud API is enabled

If Cloud API is active on your Setka account, you will see some new buttons that will help you operate with the posts.

Publishing the post

If Cloud API is enabled, you will see the Publish / Unpublish button on the post badge in your Setka account. It determines the status of the post: published or draft, respectively:

The same buttons will appear in the post editor:

Updating the post

After the post is published, it can also be updated. Until then, its' status will stay as draft . To update the post and make the new revision available as published :

  1. Make some changes in the published post and click Save draft.

  2. Click Republish:

Making API requests with the Setka Cloud API

To fetch a complete list of posts from your Setka account, run the following request by adding a license key:

GET https://editor.setka.io/api/v2/posts

To get a specific post from your Setka account, you need to specify its ID:

GET https://editor.setka.io/api/v2/posts/POST_ID

Where POST_ID is the post’s ID.

By default, API will only return published posts with no images or HubSpot data. To get draft posts, use the state:draft or state:all filters. To include HubSpot data and/or images in the results, add additional fields to the request.

Authorization

Authorizing your identity in the Setka Cloud API is possible in two ways:

1. In the request header

Add the authorization header to the request:

{
"Authorization": "Bearer YOUR_LICENSE_KEY"
}

where YOUR_LICENSE_KEY is your license key.

2. In the request parameters

Add the token parameter to the request:

GET https://editor.setka.io/api/v2/posts?token=YOUR_LICENSE_KEY

where YOUR_LICENSE_KEY is your license key.

Example API request response

If the request is successful, you will receive a response consisting of an array of posts. The response will be paginated if the number of posts is large. Below is an example API request response:
