REST API table access All tables, including base system tables, global tables, and scoped tables are accessible via web services by default. You must fulfill any other web service security requirements, such as basic authentication and ACLs to access tables via web services. You can control direct web service access to tables using the Allow access to this table via web services check box on the table application access settings. This check box must be selected to allow web service interaction with the table. Note: The application access fields controlling CRUD operations, such as Can read or Can create do not apply to web service requests.
