API Library

API Connector includes a built-in library of commonly used API URLs.

To access the library, simply enter a keyword search. You may search on API name, description, or authorization type (useful for finding totally open APIs).

When you click on a result from the API library, the following fields are pre-set for you:

  • Method
  • URL. Any dynamic variables that you need to populate will be indicated with curly brackets, e.g. {api_key}. Do not include the brackets when you substitute in your own value.
  • OAuth selection. If you are on a plan that doesn’t include OAuth, this will remain as “None”.
  • Headers
  • Pagination. The correct pagination type for that API will be automatically selected, with a page count of 1. If you are on a plan that doesn’t include pagination, this will not be set.
  • JMESPath. In some cases, a JMESPath query will be set. Again, this will not be set for plans that don’t include access to JMESPath.
  • Destination sheet. This will take the format of API_description.
  • Name. This will be set to the same value as the destination sheet.

Any of the above values can be edited once the request is loaded into the sidebar.
