The following steps will guide you through configuring Drupal to work with Azuqua.

Step 1: Set up REST API Endpoints

  • {{auth.domain}}/node?_format=json
  • {{auth.domain}}/node/{{input.Read By.Content ID}}?_format=json
  • {{auth.domain}}/node/{{input.Delete By.Content ID}}
  • {{auth.domain}}/node/{{input.Update By.Content ID}}?_format=json
  • {{auth.domain}}/node/{{input.Update By.Content ID}}
  • {{auth.domain}}/comment
  • {{auth.domain}}/comment/{{input.Read By.Comment ID}}?_format=json
  • {{auth.domain}}/taxonomy/term
  • {{auth.domain}}/taxonomy/term/{{input.Read By.Tag ID}}?_format=json
  • {{auth.domain}}/entity/date_format/medium?_format=json

These two endpoints are setup via Drupal views:
