Check nodebb-database

Overview

Get NodeBB database information.

The Plugin uses the Read API and Bearer Authentication. You need to issue a bearer token of type „user“ in the NodeBB admin panel in order to grant access to the API. In NodeBB, a user token is associated with a specific uid, and all calls are made in the name of that user.

To create a Bearer Token, do this:

  • Settings > API Access > Create Token > Specify your User ID and Description (for example „Linuxfabrik API Token“).
