Apple Announces CloudKit Support for Server-to-Server Web Service Requests

Posted by · 13938 views · Translate
Apple today announced that CloudKit now supports server-to-server web service requests.

"In addition to providing a web interface for users to access the same data as your app, you can now easily read and write to the CloudKit public database from a server-side process or script with a server-to-server key."

Composing Web Service Requests
CloudKit web service URLs have common components. Always begin the endpoints with the CloudKit web service path followed by database, the protocol version number, container ID, and environment. Then pass the operation subpath containing the credentials to access CloudKit using either an API Token or server-to-server key.

Use an API Token from a website or an embedded web view in a native app, or when you need to authenticate the user, described in Accessing CloudKit Using API Tokens. If the request requires user authentication, use the information in the response to authenticate the user. Use a server-to-server key to access the public database from a server process or script, described in Accessing CloudKit Using a Server-to-Server Key.
