Rest API XPAGES secure

I want to have an API that goes to a view and retrieves some data, but I don't want that user to access the database via the web. This is not possible because to create a REST API from XPages, you have to grant permissions to the database where you make the REST call, and that database must be accessible via the web.

Can I make that this database is not accessabe by web, only the APIS not all database. I want this improvement.

    I test this but I've problems with CrowdStrike because this consider a virus, and I must use an old version to install and test. I see that is designed for people that isn't administrator, but for making a more complex APIS is difficult. I think this possibility that the user and password that gives you in the API must have to access the data.

    The unique solution is using userroles and field read/write. But this is put more complex the database and when you want 50 users this is not possible.

    Yours sincerely, Roger.
