API Overview

Formbricks offers two types of APIs: the Public Client API and the Management API. Each API serves a different purpose, has different authentication requirements, and provides access to different data and settings.

View our API Documentation in more than 30 frameworks and languages.

Public Client API

The Public Client API is designed for our SDKs and does not require authentication. This API is ideal for client-side interactions, as it doesn't expose sensitive information.

We currently have the following Client API methods exposed and below is their documentation attached in Postman:

  • Actions API - Create actions for a Person
  • Displays API - Mark Survey as Displayed or Update an existing Display by linking it with a Response for a Person
  • People API - Create & Update a Person (e.g. attributes, email, userId, etc)
  • Responses API - Create & Update a Response for a Survey

Management API

The Management API provides access to all data and settings that your account has access to in the Formbricks app. This API requires a personal API Key for authentication, which can be generated in the Settings section of the Formbricks app. Checkout the API Key Setup below to generate & manage API Keys.

We currently have the following Management API methods exposed and below is their documentation attached in Postman:
