We offer various ways to develop against Showpad, and it all depends on your goal. In this section of our Developer Portal, you will find information on using the Showpad REST API.

The Showpad REST API can be used to access Showpad data and functionality, such as creating, editing, and deleting assets and users. This allows you to automate workflows and extend Showpad's functionality. You can integrate with Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems, Content Management Systems (CMS), User Management platforms, and many other applications. We provide this so you, as a developer, can set up communication between Showpad and particular applications you use at your company.


Open the API Explorer in the Admin Settings of Showpad's Online Platform to try out your requests.


If you are looking for a more technical and complete API Specifications, you may check out our Showpad API v4 and Showpad API v3 references.

Common Use Cases

There are a number of use cases for using the Showpad REST API. We listed down below the most common use cases of it.

Content Integrations

If you are looking to integrate with CMS or DAM systems, please check out our Asset Management guide here.

Both Showpad API v3 and v4 are required by the guide to manage assets properly. If you are not yet familiar with our Showpad API v4, please check out our Intro to Showpad API v4.

User Management

If you are looking to manage Users, please check out our User Management guide here.


Showpad API v3 and v4 for user-related endpoints should work together in hybrid mode (i.e., User IDs are the same between both API versions).


User management is only supported in our Showpad API v3 at the moment.
