Opening access to the proxy to anyone exposes you, the customer, to rate limit violations and other overages. To avoid this, an API key has been assigned to you. Please submit it as the value of a header called Api-Key when making requests, in addition to your project name as the Project header. If your API key is valid, you should see your resource returned. If your key is invalid or missing, a response with the status 401 Unauthorized and the message “Invalid Project or Api-Key” will be returned.

Sometimes the ability to quickly preview changes to a resource is desired but with caching this is normally unavailable without a purge request. Cache Bypassing allows you to use the authentication aspects of Storyteller while bypassing the caching that normally occurs. Keep in mind that by directly accessing the resource you may run into rate limits for a given API if too many requests are triggered in sequence.
