Sample Codes

Below are a few sample API methods available in the Zoho Desk Java SDK. You can get all module instance from ZDesk class.

SDK initialization and access token generation process

These examples help you to initializate and generate access token from the SDK.

Ticket Operations

These methods help you create, read, update, and delete tickets in your Zoho Desk portal.
