Binadox supports Zendesk ticketing that enables a Zendesk administrator to access Binadox notifications from the Zendesk Support account.
This guide provides information on how to configure Zendesk ticketing on the Binadox platform and send Binadox tickets to the support address in Zendesk.

1. Log into your Zendesk Support account as an administrator. From the product tray at the top right corner, select Support. In the navigation pane on the left, click on the gear icon to proceed to the Admin panel.
2. In the sidebar of the Admin panel, select API in the Channels section. On the Settings tab of the Zendesk API view, enable Token Access using the toggle button. Click the plus (+) icon in the Active API Tokens section to generate a new API token.
3. Provide a description for a new token for further identification in the API Token Description (optional) field. Click the Copy button to copy the token to the clipboard. Note that you won’t be able to see it again. Make sure to keep this value safe. Click Save.
