Hello to all members of the community!

 

I am posting this message to explore the possibility of creating a connection, for example with services such as YouTube, Gmail, and others, from a webhook. Our goal is to offer our customers a solution that allows them to automate the downloading of videos on these platforms, which requires a connection to their accounts.

 

We are considering setting up a login page using OAuth2 that we could share with our customers. Do you think this is an adequate approach?

 

Any response to this message would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance and have a great day!

 

Mediapole company.

Hi @mediapole 

Good question.

Although, it’s unclear how you intend to use the webhook.

As a trigger or as an action in your Zap.

Please outline a specific example for us to clarify.

Thanks for your reply @Troy Tessalone .
In fact, I'd like to know if it's possible to create a connection via a link rather than having to create it from Zapier itself.
Let's say I have a scenario with the YouTube module integrated, I'll then need to create the connection to YouTube with my email and password.
I can go here and add a connection, for example: https://zapier.com/app/connections
But is there any other way?
Offer the customer a link inviting him to authenticate himself for YouTube, for example. I could then use this connection to create automations without ever having seen his confidential information, of course.

Apps used in Zaps must be connected here: https://zapier.com/app/connections

OR

You’d have to use API authentication methods. (e.g. API Keys, Personal Access Tokens, etc. depending on the authentication required by the app)
