    The Admin REST API is for administrator use only, and hence is not accessible from the clients directly.

    To allow users to access the Admin API up you need to create a Couchbase Server-based RBAC-user for them — see: REST API Access

    For document changes sent to Sync Gateway through the Admin REST API, the Sync Function executes with admin privileges.
    Calls to requireUser, requireAccess and requireRole will be no-ops, and will always appear successful.

    API Explorer

    The API explorer below groups all the endpoints by functionality. You can click on a label to expand the list of endpoints and also generate a curl request for each endpoint.
