Import API Requests

Importing configuration files for the API Connector add-on for Google Sheets allows you to make use of pre-set request configurations rather than starting from scratch. The request configuration includes API URLs, headers, and output options. You may also import cURL snippets.

Export API Requests

Please note: importing is available on all plans, but exporting is a paid feature.

To export a configuration file, please open Sheets and click Extensions > API Connector > Import/Export > Export API Requests. For more detailed information please consult the knowledge base article on exporting configuration files.

Tips and Troubleshooting

  • If you want to create an exact duplicate of an existing sheet, click File > Make a copy in your existing sheet, and then import the request file into the copy. If you instead want to duplicate only the request configurations without existing data, start with a fresh, empty worksheet.
  • If your sheet already has a request with the same name, new requests will be imported in with a ‘_2’ appended to the name.
