Apart from the usual tasks associated with running a web service, the task of administering a RESTar API can be defined as:
- Setting up a configuration file that specifies API keys and allowed CORS origins, making sure that consumers have the right set of access privileges.
- Securing the REST API with HTTPS by, for example, setting up SSL encryption and firewall rules.
- Setting up macros that simplify complex requests.
- Setting up JSON output formats to conform to external standards.
- Setting up webhooks that are triggered by events raised by the RESTar application.
- Other tasks such as setting database indexes, assigning aliases to resources, creating dynamic resources and troubleshooting resource errors. Check out the built-in resources in the RESTar.Admin namespace for some useful tools and utilities.
