A request is an end user's perspective on a ticket. End users can only see public comments and certain fields of a ticket. Use this API to let end users view, update, and create tickets they have access to.

You can sideload some resources with requests. See Requests in Supported Endpoints in Side-loading.

Authentication

End users can use the Requests API.

Note: An end user won't be able to view their requests if the end user added an email identity (an email address associated with a Zendesk profile) after September 17, 2017, and didn't verify the email address. The problem is flagged by the API with a 403 response. See Verifying a user's email address in the Support Help Center.

Anonymous requests are supported for ticket creation but can be disabled by administrators. These anonymous requests have a rate limit of 5 requests per hour for trial accounts. See Create Request below.

Admins and agents are treated as end users when using the Requests endpoint.

Multibrand accounts

On the Enterprise plan and above, a Support account can have more than one brand. See Understanding how Multibrand works in your account in the Support Help Center.

If you have multiple brands in your account, the Requests API only returns tickets for the brand specified in the API path. It doesn't return all tickets in the account. In the API path, the brand is specified by the subdomain. For example, a GET request to https://omniwear.zendesk.com/api/v2/requests.json only returns tickets for the Omniwear brand, even if Omniwear is the default brand.

Status (legacy) and Custom Ticket Status

Create Request

  • POST /api/v2/requests

Accepts a request object that sets one or more properties.

Allowed for

  • End users
  • Anonymous users (rate limit of 5 requests per hour for trial accounts)

Additional properties

In addition to the writable request properties in the JSON Format table above, you can set the following properties when creating a request.

NameTypeMandatoryComment
commentobjectyesDescribes the problem, incident, question, or task. See Request comments
collaboratorsarraynoAdds collaborators (cc's) to the request. An email notification is sent to them when the ticket is created. See Setting collaborators
requesterobjectyes**Required for anonymous requests. Specifies the requester of the anonymous request. See Creating anonymous requests

Creating follow-up requests

Once a ticket is closed (as distinct from solved), it can't be reopened. However, you can create a new request that references the closed ticket. To create the follow-up request, include a via_followup_source_id property in the request object that specifies the closed ticket. The parameter only works with closed tickets. It has no effect with other tickets.
