API Reference

Overview

The freshservice API

Freshservice's APIs belong to the REpresentational State Transfer (REST) category. This allows you to perform "RESTful" operations like read, modify, add or delete data from your service desk.

What can I do with the freshservice API?

With the APIs, you can

Read
  1. Browse through tickets, users - their details and satisfaction ratings.
  2. Apply Filters and get only the data that you want
Write
  1. Create new tickets or users and modify the details of existing ones.
  2. Create solutions and answer FAQs.
Support
  1. Carry on conversations about a ticket using public or private notes.
  2. Assign tickets to the right people for the job.
  3. Collaborate with fellow agents via "Private Notes" in a ticket.
  4. Escalate unsolved problems.

API Endpoints and SSL

API endpoints are mapped to your account domain:

https://domain.freshservice.com/path/to/api.json

If you have disabled ssl under admin settings for your freshservice domain, your API calls must point to the normal endpoint—simply change the https:// part of the endpoint to http://.

http://domain.freshservice.com/path/to/api.json

For brevity, all further references in document relating to API endpoints will use the default https.

Authentication

How does it work? Who can access my helpdesk? Can everybody see my data?

"Thou shall not pass." Unless you authenticate your ID

Before you can set the priority of a ticket or change a customer's name or use any of the APIs listed above, you need to "authenticate your ID" or "login" in the same way as you login into your helpdesk's web portal.

Freshservice uses Basic Access Authorization. This means, for authentication, you can use the same username and password you use when logging into your helpdesk. Or, you can use your personal API key provided by us. If you use the API Key, there is no need for any password. You can use any set of characters as a dummy password.

curl -u user@yourcompany.com:test -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET https://domain.freshservice.com/helpdesk/tickets.json

curl -u apikey:X -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X GET https://domain.freshservice.com/helpdesk/tickets.json

Note:
If you are sure that your password and username are correct, but are still unable to access your helpdesk, make sure that your "username:password" (or "APIkey:X") is Base64-encoded before passing it as an "Authorization" header.

Where can I find my API key?

  1. Login to your Support Portal
  2. Click on your profile picture on the top right corner of your portal
  3. Go to Profile settings Page
  4. Your API key will be available below the change password section to your right

How do I access the information? What are the resources available via the API?

Every single piece of information or data - be it a customer's ID or the priority of a specific ticket - can be identified by its own unique identifier or "URI". If you want your data from the helpdesk, whether via your smartphone app or via a third party service, you need this identifier. All URIs follow a specific format and that format is:
https://your_helpdesk_domain_name/resource_name

For example: If you are Davy Jones and you are managing the drowned souls and their problems via your freshservice portal "thelocker.freshservice.com", then to access contacts in your helpdesk, the syntax would be
https://www.thelocker.freshservice.com/itil/requesters.json
For tickets, it would be
https://www.thelocker.freshservice.com/helpdesk/tickets.json

Note:
We have shortened API resource URL throughout this document. Prefix your support domain name to the resource handle.
Example:
/helpdesk/tickets is actually https://yourdomain.freshservice.com/helpdesk/tickets

What API commands are used by freshservice?

Freshservice APIs have been implemented as plain JSON over HTTP and use the following REST Commands:

Command Purpose
POST Create one or more items
GET Fetch one or more items
PUT Update one or more existing items
DELETE Remove one or more items that already exist

Will everyone have the same access rights?

No, everyone will not have the same access rights. Your ability to access data depends on the permissions available for your freshservice profile. If your freshservice Agent Role is "Newbie Agent" who is not allowed to answer to tickets, but is only allowed to view them, then the APIs will restrict you from answering and you'll only be able to view the tickets.

Rate Limit

The number of API calls per hour is restricted to 1000. If your API request is received after the limit has been reached, freshservice will give you an error response. The "retry-after" value in the response header will tell you how long you need to wait before you send another API request.

Response
HTTP STATUS: HTTP 403 Forbidden
Headers:
"Retry-After": <seconds>

Please contact support@freshservice.com for further queries.
