# Navarik Bridge HTTP API Overview

# API support

The APIs documented on this site are officially supported by Navarik, unless they are marked as deprecated. Don't consume any Bridge API unless the API is documented on this site. You should consider all undocumented endpoints private, subject to change without notice, and not covered by any agreements.

# Version guidelines

The Bridge API is a versioned API. Navarik reserves the right to add new parameters, properties, or objects to the API without advance notice.
