Claves GPG

La API de REST permite administrar las claves GPG de los usuarios autenticados.

Acerca de la administración de claves GPG

Los datos que se devuelven en el campo de respuesta de public_key no son una clave con formato GPG. Cuando un usuario carga una llave GPG, se interpreta y la llave pública criptográfica se extrae y se almacena. Esta clave criptográfica es lo que devolverán los puntos de conexión de esta categoría. Esta clave no es adecuada para su uso directo en programas como GPG.

Si una URL de solicitud no incluye un parámetro {username}, la respuesta será para el usuario que inició sesión (y debes pasar la información de autenticación con tu solicitud). La información privada adicional como, por ejemplo, si un usuario tiene habilitada la autenticación en dos fases, se incluye cuando se está autenticado con la autenticación básica o mediiante OAuth, con el ámbito de user.

List GPG keys for the authenticated user

Lists the current user's GPG keys. Requires that you are authenticated via Basic Auth or via OAuth with at least read:gpg_key scope.
