Page Shield API

You can change the Page Shield status and fetch information about the currently monitored scripts using the Page Shield API.

For authentication instructions, refer to Getting Started: Requests in the Cloudflare API documentation.

Endpoints

You can obtain the complete endpoint by appending the Page Shield API endpoints listed below to the Cloudflare API base URL.

The Cloudflare API base URL is:

https://api.cloudflare.com/client/v4

The <ZONE_ID> argument is the zone ID (a hexadecimal string). You can find this value in the Cloudflare dashboard or using the Cloudflare API’s /zones endpoint.

The <SCRIPT_ID> argument is the script ID (a hexadecimal string). This value is included in the response of the List Page Shield scripts operation for every monitored script.

The following table summarizes the available operations:

OperationMethod + URL stubNotes
Get Page Shield statusGET zones/<ZONE_ID>/script_monitorFetch the current Page Shield status (enabled/disabled).
Update Page Shield statusPUT zones/<ZONE_ID>/script_monitorUpdates the Page Shield status (enabled/disabled).

API notes

  • The malicious script classification (Malicious or Not malicious) is not directly available in the API. To determine this classification, compare the script’s js_integrity_score value with the classification threshold, which is currently set to 50 — scripts with a score value above the threshold are considered malicious.

  • The API provides two separate properties for malicious script categories: malicious_domain_categories and malicious_url_categories, related to the domain_reported_malicious and url_reported_malicious properties, respectively. The Cloudflare dashboard displays all the categories in a single Malicious category field. For more information, refer to Malicious script categories.
