How to know when ordering functionality is unavailable

There are several ways to know if a restaurant is offline:

HTTP code responses

If the Toast platform is offline, you typically receive a 5XX response when you try to submit orders.

Status page notifications

To receive notifications about planned and unplanned outages, sign up for API status notifications at http://status-dev.toasttab.com.

Release notes

Sign up for Toast’s API release note distribution list.

When Toast has planned maintenance windows, we send release note announcements in addition to updating our API status page.
