Restaurant management group API accounts

Restaurant management group API accounts give an API client access to all of the Toast platform restaurants in one restaurant management group. A restaurant management group might represent a restaurant chain or it might represent the ownership of a single restaurant location.

You can use a restaurant management group API account to perform Toast API operations for any of the restaurants that are part of that restaurant management group.

The following diagram shows a restaurant management group API client using a management group authentication token to perform API operations at any restaurant location that is a part of that restaurant management group. It does not matter which partners a location has chosen to connect to.
