Partner API accounts

Partner API accounts give an API client access to multiple Toast platform restaurants that may be part of different restaurant management groups. Typically, a partner API client account is used by a restaurant service provider. An individual Toast platform restaurant that uses the services that you provide can choose to give your API account access to the restaurant.

You can use a partner API account to perform Toast API operations for any of the restaurants that you have access to. When you authenticate with a partner API account, you use the same authentication token at any of the restaurants.

The following diagram shows a partner API client using a partner authentication token to perform API operations at any restaurant location that chooses to give that partner access.
