The plugin works great, is easy to use and helped us getting information from our DB in JSON, very easily. We are using Grafana in Docker and needed to get information from a wordpress DB hosted directly on the host. One way of achieving this was to open the DB to the world and connect to it from Grafana but, hey, that's not the best way to keep things secured. Then we ran into this plugin and it made the work so much easier - and secure!. Now, the plugin puts the data we needed in an API route, and our Grafana dashboard can query the API as much as it needs to. Brilliant. We spotted an issue in the logs and the support team took care of it very quickly. They proposed a zoom call to check what was the issue so that, if it was on their part, they could patch. But it was only a compatibility problem which solved the issue by himself. So no problem in the end. I thank them once again 🙂 Pr

We thought this was the plugin for us but needed some extra work done on top. The xecurify guys have always been available in responding to our requests and punctual in assistance. Nichilesh was our developer an he's done a great job again asking the right questions to understand the project as our customization requirements went above and beyond from what the default plugin does. Nonetheless he's done it, and all has worked out fine. Nichilesh followed the API configuration documents we had provided and constantly updated us on the progress of the procedure. All in all an Excellent service, we will be happy to do business with this establishment again in the future if and when required.

With Custom API For WP, it's really easy to create a custom API. I don't understand much about API but the configuration of the endpoints and routes is very simple and don't require any line of code. There is no documentation though but the customer service is very efficiant and you get a quick answer to help you solve a problem or your configuration.

I needed to create API endpoints for my client's website in a short time window. I searched the WP plugin directory and found Custom API For WP. This plugin assisted in quickly creating custom API endpoints without the need for the overhead of coding. With their UI, the API endpoints can be created intuitively. I had a question, so I contacted their support team and they were very responsive.

This is the best and only plugin i found on WordPress for creating custom REST API's to fetch any type of data from WordPress Database. We just have to choose from a simple GUI and mention what action we want on database and it automatically creates API's which can be used anywhere.
