Content Manager

Content Manager controller gets calls from the front end and responds in json format. In order to make these calls sucessfully you need to be recognised as a user who has the permissions for these actions. For your admin user, you can generate a Unique Token Key from /admin/profile and send it as GET/POST parameter. This token should be kept private and not used from javascript calls.

/cm/describe

curl 'https://gilacms.com/cm/describe/?t=post&token=<unique_token_key>'
