I like to retrieve unread/mention count using REST API but I do not know how to begin?

Can anyone tell me how should I begin and do I need any credentials when consuming the REST service?


You can invoke a REST call from C# Client Application or JavaScript

The REST call you are mentioning relates to Social Feature and more on this is explained in msdn


The endpoint is <siteUri>/_api/social.feed/my/UnreadMentionCount

If you are making these REST calls from within SharePoint then you don't need to pass any credentials.
