Using the TeamViewer API, you can integrate TeamViewer functionality into other systems like CRMs, ticket systems, helpdesk solutions, or web apps.

This article applies to all TeamViewer customers with a Business, Premium, Corporate  or Tensor plan.

  • User management 
  • Connection reporting 
  • Remote control sessions with service cases 
  • Online Meetings 
  • Computers & Contacts list 

Detailed information and example scripts can be found on our website:
