I am trying to access wordpress menus using the /wp/v2 api.

The endpoint that I am using is:

My wordpress Staging Site's WP-API Endpoint

The Plugin I am using is:


But on accessing menus I am getting this error message for permission denied:

Error is:

"code": "rest_cannot_view",
"message": "Sorry, you cannot view these menus, unless you have access to permission edit them. ",
"data": {
"status": 401

How can i Set public if it is possible?

That plugin developer states it right on the page you referenced in your question. If you're wondering how I solved this.

  • Thanks man. Btw i also found this plugin earlier. But thanks for suggesting.
