A limited portion of DocumentCloud's API is available for public use, including document search and individual document data retrieval. All other resources require authentication via a DocumentCloud account. No API key is required.
Please be considerate and don't hammer our servers.
We reserve the right to revise these guidelines. If you violate these terms (for example, using the API to systematically access and reprint documents that you or your newsroom didn't contribute), DocumentCloud reserves the right to restrict or terminate your account and/or API access.
