Optimizely Content Management API Developer Guide

Recommended reading 

The Optimizely Content Management API adds REST endpoints for basic content management operations such as:

  • Create content objects
  • Get draft content objects
  • Modify existing content objects
  • Delete content objects
  • Move content objects

The REST API is useful for pushing external content to Optimizely without having to deploy custom integration code to the CMS.
