API scopes: read/write


I am working with your new API a lot.

Basically, I do n8n monitoring for our customers, and they usually send us their apikey.

This is a bit dangerous because the apikey is able to modify everything (one api key to rule them all ;).

I think it would be quite useful create two api scopes:

  • write scope allows to do everything.
  • read scope allows to only get data.

If feature is implemented I will use read scope to monitor n8ns.

Thank you team!

Good idea.

The current public api is only the first version, so hope they will get the chance to also implement this for the second.

Ps. Don’t forget to vote
