Hi, I store some private information that I only want to be visible on content delivery api response if request has token in header. I'm still new to Umbraco so not sure how to proceed. Or is there a way to store custom data type which is visible in back office, but not to content API, so i can only access it via custom controller route?
Should note I am aware u can restrict public access but I'd like to try keep it public where i can.

Hey Conner, I wonder if you could use "DisallowedContentTypeAliases" in the Delivery API settings. This way you can setup a node which is visible in the backoffice, but can then be hidden from the API. I often have a 'Settings' node that is not public. So I'd have...
"DisallowedContentTypeAliases": ["settings"] the config.
