How can I test the REST API before implementing it within a script/app?
You can make Zendesk REST API calls using the API Console. This allows you to make individual requests to better understand the behavior of the API before coding a larger solution.
If you experience an issue with a request on this page and would like assistance, feel free to reach out to our Support team. At the bottom of the completed request page there is a permalink to that request and response, after the line You can access this request again at. Send that over to us and we can take a look at the details of the request to better assist you.
This is also useful for making requests on Windows systems where CURL does not come pre-installed.
