The Zoho CRM API lets you fetch CRM data from your Zoho CRM account. Get your records, add or remove records, search and update your records. Zoho CRM has numerous modules: leads, accounts, contacts, potentials, campaigns, tasks, events, cases, solutions, products, price books, quotes, vendors, purchase orders, sales orders, and invoices.
Zoho CRM provides API (Application Programming Interface) for integrating CRM modules with any third-party applications. With the Zoho CRM API, you can extract CRM data in XML or JSON format and develop new applications or integrate with your existing business applications. As the Zoho CRM API is independent of programming languages, you can develop applications in any programming language (Java, .Net, C, C++, PHP, etc.).
There are Different API methods for Zoho CRM:
Until now, the Zoho CRM Developer API Implementation required the API Key and Ticket to be used in all API calls. But now a new method for ZOHO CRM API is the Authentication Token for all API calls. This token will become invalid ONLY if you choose to delete it.
To use the API, you’ll require the Zoho CRM Authentication Token from your CRM account. Please make sure that you have the permission to access the API service. If you do not have permission, please contact your CRM administrator.
To generate the Auth Token, you need to send an authentication request to Zoho Accounts using the URL format below.
