Create a Public Endpoint

You can also use the Access editor to make a resource publicly accessible. To do this, fill in the role public in step 6 above. This way, you're effectively creating a new public endpoint for the resource. You can access the public endpoint by replacing web with public in the endpoint's URL.

  1. Fill in the public role in the Roles field of the Create Constraint dialog and choose Save.

    Add public role

  2. Publish your project.

  3. Copy the endpoint's URL from the Preview view.

    Copy URL

  4. Open a browser and replace web with public in the URL.
