Hi @Tibbys 

Good question.

We would need to see screenshots with how you Zap step is configured.

The error is because the mapped dynamic variables have “No data”.

Make sure to test Step 2.


I tested using user id but see this error

Hi there @Tibbys,

I’m jumping in to see if I can help!

Since the ID doesn’t have any data (no data) in the sample data. Could you please try skipping the action step by clicking on the “Skip test” button, and publish the Zap?

After publishing the Zap, please trigger the Zap while the Zap is published and check if it’ll run into the same error.

Please give that a try, and let us know how it goes!
