Passing Additional Query Parameters To Your Drupal Endpoint

This is an optional security measure.  Use the custom endpoint option to create an additional layer of security between Kapost and your CMS.  The custom endpoint feature allows you to create an endpoint that is unique to Kapost.  Once this unique endpoint is created, you can then configure your CMS to only accept requests coming from this unique endpoint (which only Kapost knows about) and ignore any other requests coming from other unknown endpoints (which may be malicious).

To create a custom endpoint, you'll want to pass extra query parameters to your xmlrpc endpoint, namely xmlrpc.php.  You can do this by setting the advanced field in Distribution Settings ("Set Custom Endpoint") to the full canonical URL including any parameters.




 Your 'Endpoint' would look something like: http://yourdrupal.com/xmlrpc.php being your secret parameter.
