About Access to Published HubDB Table
Sep 4, 2019 12:03 PM
I have a question about tables in HubDB. Who can access a published table and how? There are warnings about this, but I'm not sure what they mean.
When you publish a table, HubSpot warns you that "Publishing your HubDB table will make all of the information stored in the table public and accessible to anyone via the public API," which sounds like anyone in the world can fetch data from your table. In the documentation, it says "When a table is published, it becomes public and it can be queried from unauthenticated APIs such as HubL tags and functions." This makes it sound like, in addition to being accessible by the authenticated REST API, the table can also be accessed from web pages in HubSpot (but only there, since HubL runs there). It is unclear to me whether this means HubL in your own pages or anyone's pages on HubSpot.
What exactly do these warnings mean?
Thanks for any information,
