n8n was created to give developers freedom and flexibility. Since n8n is built around 3rd party API access, it makes sense for us to also provide a publicly available API. Now, you can perform most of the actions that are offered by the n8n UI, but from your own script.
To learn more about using the n8n REST API, be sure to read our docs, where you can learn the following:
- How to authenticate
- Paginating results
- Using the built-in API playground
- Endpoint reference.
