# Conversation interactions

Conversation interactions are all the interactions within a single conversation. For example, a customer reply is an interaction of type customer and an agent reply is an interaction of type user. The agent can also create conversation-level notes, which is an interaction of type note.

Note & tip

  1. Other types of interactions could be added in the future, keep this in mind when developing around this API.
  2. Fingerprint authentication is supported in this endpoint.
