You don’t need to enable the API, as long as the WP REST API is enabled EE hooks into that and works with it.

To test if it’s working depends on the details you want to pull, but if you visit:


And see details of your events, the API is working.

Another example is:


If you see details of your site, the API is working.

If you let us know what you are trying to do with the API we may be able to point you in the right direction.

Your server may not be passing the authorization header, try the steps posted here:

(The EE4 apps use the API to communicate with your site, which is why the page page above is from the app documentation)

Ah, right.

By default, you’ll need to use an Admin account as that has all of the EE capabilities assigned to it.

Hi there,

I’m afraid that is not correct syntax. Here’s a link to the API documentation for writing data that include examples of how to make specific API calls:–REST-API/

I’ll point to the direction of the documentation again, specifically here:–REST-API/

You’ll note that it mentions:

You can either send the arguments either in the url-encoded body of the requests or as a JSON body

It appears that you’re trying to provide some arguments within the query string, which the REST API will likely ignore.

Also, it looks like you’re trying to create a bunch of entries simultaneously. The REST API doesn’t actually work that way. Instead, you will need to create each record individually, one per request.
