In that case you will need to send api key of the logged in user who access is limited by ACL (also check_permission = 1 in api params).

  • I tried but it gives me an error. error_message: "Failed to authenticate key". I also provide a api key and site key then it gives me a error. error_message "ERROR: No CMS user associated with given api-key"

  • this error occurs if the the logged user doesn't have api key. You need to have api key for all user. Api key is only required when using rest api Apr 16, 2019 at 10:13
