Admin API

Current version: 10.1

The Admin API is a REST API that enables you to administer your Experience Edge for XM tenants.

Base URL

The base URL for the Admin API is https://edge.sitecorecloud.io/api/admin/v1.

Authentication

All endpoints use bearer authorization.

Headers

The following header is required:

Name

Format

Purpose

Authorization

Bearer {Token}

A JSON web token (JWT). Request a JWT for Experience Edge XM using OAuth.

Time-to-live

The time-to-live (TTL) determines the maximum time that content and media items are retained in the cache, which might be purged before that time expires. The TTL values for content (contentCacheTtl) and media items (mediaCacheTtl) are included as response parameters returned by several Admin API endpoints. The default value of both parameters is four hours:

RequestResponsejson
{
    "contentCacheTtl": "04:00:00",
    "contentCacheAutoClear": true,
    "mediaCacheTtl": "04:00:00",
    "mediaCacheAutoClear": true,
    "tenantCacheAutoClear": true
}

To set or update TTL values, use a string with the following notation:

RequestResponse
{days}.{hours}:(minutes}:{seconds}

For example, "720.00:00:00" sets the value to 720 days, and "00:15:00" sets the value to 15 minutes.
