Zoho Support, a helpdesk software application, provides Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to all its partners, customers and developers. Using APIs, you can integrate Zoho Support modules with other Zoho services, third-party applications, portals or Web sites and customize them as required. You can extract Zoho Support data in XML or JSON format. Our APIs are available across all editions.
Zoho Support provides the following API methods:
|getrecords||To get records from Zoho Support|
|addrecords||To add records to Zoho Support|
|updaterecords||To update records in Zoho Support|
|deleterecords||To delete records from Zoho Support|
The usage of API is limited by number of calls under different editions available in Zoho Support.
|Free||250 calls per day / Organization|
|Express||250 calls per day / user license or a max limit of 5000 calls per day / Organization|
|Professional||250 calls per day / user license or a max limit of 5000 calls per day / Organization|
|Enterprise||250 calls per day / user license or a max limit of 15,000 calls per day/ Organization|
Copy the API key that is generated. You will require this key to integrate Zoho Support with other third-party services.
While initiating API requests, you must pass the ticket parameter (encrypted alphanumeric string) to authenticate the user credentials with Zoho. To generate a ticket for a particular user, you need to send an authenticated HTTPS POST request over a secured connection to Zoho Accounts.
