/api/admin/features

Deprecation notice

Most of this API was deprecated as part of the v4.3 release and will be removed in v5.0. You should use the project-based API (/api/admin/projects/:projectId) instead. The deprecated endpoints are marked as such in the document below.

info

In order to access the admin API endpoints you need to identify yourself. Unless you're using the none authentication method, you'll need to create an admin token and add an Authorization header using the token.
