Our REST API is a core building block of the Intercom Platform. You can use it to retrieve and update information from your own Intercom account, or to integrate Intercom into your own product. It's completely up to you and your custom use case.
The API is organized around the following resources:
Fetch, search, create, update and delete your contacts (users or leads).
View, update and convert anonymous visitors on a website.
Create and update Companies. List companies or access them individually.
List attributes used to describe your customer and company models.
Organise Users and your workspace Admins with tags.
View your workspace's Segments.
Create and view notes about Users.
Use Events to submit User activity to Intercom
Counts of Users and Companies by segment and tag. View open and closed counts for Admins.
List conversations you have with users on your system. Allow Users and Admins to send messages and reply to conversations.
Create and view Messages.
View your workspace's teammates.
View your workspace's teams.
Create, retrieve, update, and delete articles.
Create, retrieve, update, and delete Collections and Sections.
The API uses common approaches for the following:
API data is JSON encoded with UTF-8. API JSON is either a single object or a list of objects.
4xx and 5xx responses returning JSON with error codes.
Controls how many requests can be made in a time window.
Methods are used in accordance with HTTP (GET POST and DELETE are the primary methods used) and resources are identified using URIs. All API requests are sent over HTTPS.
