Do I Need Cloudflare API

I am setting up Cloudflare for my website for the first time. The last step in Module 2 is to create an API. However, I don’t understand what the API is used for, and the article on creating it doesn’t tell me what it is for. Do I need to create an API? Is this standard practice for every user?

No, creating an API token is not a mandatory step for every Cloudflare user. The API is used for automating tasks and integrating Cloudflare with other systems or applications. If you’re just setting up Cloudflare for basic website protection and performance enhancement, you don’t need to create an API token. It’s typically used for more advanced configurations or by developers who need programmatic access to their Cloudflare settings.
