Monitoring Toast API responses

Toast APIs return important information about the results of the REST requests that you send. The Toast APIs return standard HTTP responses, which include information about the result of the REST request and information about any errors that occurred. When you develop an integration with the Toast platform, your client software must monitor and respond to those HTTP responses.

The Toast platform performs restaurant functions and returns restaurant information in response to successful REST requests. The Toast platform does not monitor the status of individual integration clients or take any action when a client sends one or more unsuccessful requests. Your Toast platform integration client software must react to unsuccessful REST requests in a way that makes it possible for your organization to correct any problems.

To get help correcting problems that result in unsuccessful Toast API requests, contact Toast integration support.
