Hi, I have very little programming knowledge and I’m trying to set up API calls with Zapier to get links from Reddit posts scheduled with to no avail, I don’t understand why this code isn’t working after hours switching things around, any help would be amazing.

The documentation is on: and I’ve tested out the code itself on: and it seems to work but on Zapier I’m getting this message: Failed to create a request in Webhooks by Zapier ERROR: The request could not be satisfied (HTTP Status Code: 403)

I’ve screenshotted the code below, the text version is: query submissions( $limit: Int = 1 ) { submissions( limit: $limit ) { objects { result { url } } } }

Hi @bapbipboop 

Good question.

Try changing the Method from GET to POST as per the API docs.


Hi, yep already tried that and: Failed to create a request in Webhooks by Zapier
POST body sent invalid JSON. (HTTP Status Code: 400) also tried:
query submissions(
  $orderBy: String
  $limit: Int = 50
  $page: Int = 50
  $startDate: DateTime
  $accounts: [String]
  $subreddits: [String]
) {
    orderBy: $orderBy
    limit: $limit
    page: $page
    startDate: $startDate
    accounts: $accounts
    subreddits: $subreddits
  ) {
    objects {
      result {

as to make sure I wasn’t getting rate limited. (code comes from at the bottom which I’ve tried in multiple variations)

Using this example from their API docs:


This would be the JSON to put in the Data field.

{"query": "query profile { profile { id username email registeredAt } }", "operationName": "profile"}


EXAMPLE: Data field
