  • Hello Zoe,

    Thanks for reaching out!

Report a problem or provide a suggestion on Developer Community, get advice on Stack Overflow, and get support on Azure DevOps Support.

  • Representational State Transfer (REST) APIs are service endpoints that support sets of HTTP operations (methods), which provide create, retrieve, update, or delete access to the service's resources. This article walks you through:

    Overviews of creating and sending a REST request, and handling the response.
    Most REST APIs are accessible through our client libraries, which can be used to greatly simplify your client code.
