What is the Service API ?

The Service API, SAPI for short, provides access to selected CrowdSec SaaS features. New SaaS features will usually appear on SAPI first before getting their UI counterpart. The current capabilities of this API are:

  • Blocklist creation & management
    • Allowing you to create private blocklists and share them
    • As well as subscribing to any of the blocklists available to your organization
  • Integrations endpoints creation & management
