Zendesk integration overview


Zendesk is a customer service platform that empowers organizations to improve customer engagement and better understand their customers.

Zendesk is available as a Marketplace integration. The integration lets you easily create and update Zendesk tickets from within Persona.

A common way to use this integration is to create a Zendesk ticket automatically via a Workflow.


To use this integration, you must have a Zendesk instance.


The Zendesk integration authenticates using OAuth.
