Remote Support API Programmer's Guide

Front-end integration of the Bomgar API enables customers to correlate Bomgar support sessions with third-party or in-house developed applications to pull report data, issue commands, or automatically save a backup of the Bomgar Appliance's software configuration on a recurring basis.
