can’t do that but you can add a API route thats unprotected and only mutates that document

Do you use Next.js?

Anyways something like this:

const documentId = ""

export const handler = (req, res) => {
  const mutation = req.body;

  await authClient.patch(documentId, mutation).commit()

Not sure the use case for this though as anyone can overwrite anything any time.

I want to hit Mutate API from a third party site wich is public and no auth is implemented.
I just want to keep track of clicks on specific links.

Is it possible without authenticating user?

This is not possible. All write requests to your dataset require authentication.
