Not explicitly, but you can always infer this by:

  1. Looking at the name of the Zapier action and comparing it to the available API calls in the app’s documentation, and/or
  2. Looking at the data the Zap returned and comparing it to the data that should be returned as stated in the app’s API documentation.

Of course, when developers create a Zapier app, they could potentially create custom API calls that aren’t included in their public API documentation, so there’s a chance the equivalent API call doesn’t even exist (at least not publicly).

Oh, just seeing your other post with some more information about the specifics of your use case. Will reply over there.

I was worried that I would not be able to access the ‘create a service request’ API call. I guess I don’t understand why it isn’t a public call. It is the only record type in AgencyZoom’s documentation that cannot be created through API calls. Yet, it is somehow on Zapier. Thank you for confirming the problem. At least I won’t stay hung-up on finding a solution.
