Identify an admin

Request

You can view the currently authorised admin along with the embedded app object (a "workspace" in legacy terminology).

🚧 Single Sign On

If you are building a custom "Log in with Intercom" flow for your site, and you call the /me endpoint to identify the logged-in user, you should not accept any sign-ins from users with unverified email addresses as it poses a potential impersonation security risk.

By default, it's equal to the version set in the app package.

Default 2.11
