About CloudKit Web Services

You use the CloudKit native framework to take your app’s existing data and store it in the cloud so that the user can access it on multiple devices. Then you can use CloudKit web services or CloudKit JS to provide a web interface for users to access the same data as your app. To use CloudKit web services, you must have the schema for your databases already created. CloudKit web services provides an HTTP interface to fetch, create, update, and delete records, zones, and subscriptions. You also have access to discoverable users and contacts.

To access the web services using JavaScript, read CloudKit JavaScript Reference.
