I am seeing similar behavior too for read API (for example get user by email api), master token and _uid are ignored when sending request. The document states that master token can be used, however it doesn't seem to be the case for all APIs.
API documentation, or lack of?
Trying to decide on a forum software to use, right now it's between nodebb and discourse. Discourse has pretty good documentation, nodebb not so much from what I can tell.
What I'm specifically looking for is the ability to send requests to nodebb routes. I play on creating an SPA with vue, btw I want to bridge user authentication with the forum.
Does nodebb have an relatively painless and clear way of doing this?
This plugin seems to be what you're looking for.
