The PDQ Connect team is excited to announce the release of a public API. Part of our ongoing product roadmap, the API opens up many possibilities for sysadmins to condense their existing device management workflows.

Integrate PDQ Connect with your own scripts and other tools by leveraging our secure REST API. Further automate your device management by deploying a package, surfacing inventory information, and more from elsewhere in your tech stack.

Get started in Settings by configuring the API with PDQ Connect’s secure, token-based authentication system. Generate an API key to begin interacting with the API. (See detailed instructions in our support knowledge base.)
