# Smartsupp REST API
Welcome to our REST API documentation, a place where you can find everything about connecting your own solution to Smartsupp. For this section, we assume that you have some developer knowledge and at least a basic understanding of the REST architecture and the HTTP/HTTPS protocols. You can start with the authentication in the Get started section. 🙂
This section is intended for developers. In case you do not understand these docs and you would like to use features of our REST API, you should forward this documentation to your developer or hire one. If you just want to use our standard chat box (which you can configure in the Settings (opens new window)), you can use the Chat Box docs.
