Configure a scripted REST API to require an ACL

Configure a scripted REST API to require that requesting users satisfy an ACL.

Before you begin

Role required: web_service_admin

About this task

Requests to scripted REST APIs respect platform ACLs. The requesting user must meet any table ACL requirements to access instance data. Additionally, you can configure the scripted REST API to require a specific ACL.


  1. Navigate to System Web Services > Scripted REST APIs.
  2. Select a scripted REST API record.
  3. In the Default ACL field, select one or more ACLs that have a Type value of REST_Endpoint.
    A requesting user must satisfy at least one of the selected ACLs. It is not necessary to satisfy all selected ACLs.
  4. Click Update.

What to do next

You can override the API security settings for each individual resource.
