API Introduction

The Deskpro API is a REST API that runs over HTTP(S). All API requests are made to a URL that begins with http://example.com/api/v2/.

The API uses JSON for requests and responses. There are a few exceptions to this rule where an API is explicitly designed to return a specific kind of resource. Those will be noted within the documentation.

Here’s an example call made to the helpdesk/discover endpoint:

curl http://example.com/api/v2/helpdesk/discover

The response will look something like this:

    "data": {
        "is_deskpro": true,
        "helpdesk_url": "https:\/\/example.com\/",
        "base_api_url": "https:\/\/example.com\/api\/v2\/",
        "build": "1477995658"
    "meta": {},
    "linked": {}
