A message from our CEO about the future of Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange. Read now.

Questions about the built-in API **HELP PAGES** at api.stackexchange.com/docs. For issues with the API itself, use the [api] tag, not this tag.

Stack Exchange provides extensive documentation for the API which can be found at api.stackexchange.com/docs.

The doc pages also have handy "Try It" tools that let you preview live API calls and tweak filters for almost all methods.

Use this tag () if you have an issue with one or more of these doc pages.
But, more likely your issue is with the API itself. Use the tag for that.
