Hi 👋, not sure if this is the right forum. I'm looking to use the Powered by Airbyte approach, but am thinking of going the hosted route at first. I saw this on the docs page, but it seems like it might conflict with other messages I've seen in Slack since joining today:
For Airbyte Open-Source you don't need the API Token for Authentication! All endpoints are possible to access using the API without it. Note: Airbyte Cloud does not currently support API access.
So, I suppose I have two questions. 1. Is this still the case? Only the open-source version supports API access? 2. If so, is there any sense of when API support for cloud would be added to the roadmap?

Hey we have support in both also it's just that OSS doesn't have authentication so you can directly hit API where as cloud has authentication

Great to hear! Do you have documentation about getting auth tokens for the cloud version? I can't seem to figure out how.

@Tristan Tarpley Airbyte Cloud doesn’t support API yet, the plan is to add Q2 this feature.

Sorry, I think I might have misunderstood @Harshith (Airbyte)’s response. Sounds great, I'm looking forward to this feature being released!
