IT Service Management (ITSM) is a fundamental pillar of today’s IT operations. It streamlines the way IT services are delivered and managed, ensuring that businesses operate efficiently. With the rise of cloud computing and the use of various web services, the need to integrate ITSM platforms using REST API has never been more pronounced.
What is REST API integration?
At its core, REST API integration is about allowing two different systems to communicate with each other in real-time. API, which stands for Application Programming Interface, serves as a bridge for transmitting data between different software applications. In the case of REST API, it utilizes HTTP requests to GET, PUT, and post data, often formatted in JSON or XML.
