Parsing Webflow API request to get User ID from Email via Code Step

Hi!

I’m trying to get the user id “_id” for a specific email from a Webflow Membership API call that returns a JSON list of users. I’m not quite sure how to handle the Webhook output in the code step. using the “full response data” gives me a syntax error.

any help is much appreciated!

 

 

here the code im using:

// inputData is provided by Zapier, and inputData.userlist should be your JSON string
const userList = JSON.parse(inputData.userlist);

// email to find is passed in as inputData.email
const emailToFind = inputData.email;

let userId;
for (let user of userList.users) {
if (user.data.email === emailToFind) {
userId = user._id;
break;
}
}

if (userId) {
console.log(`User ID for ${emailToFind} is ${userId}`);
return { id: userId }; // Returns user ID in a way that it can be used in the next step of your Zap
} else {
console.log(`No user found with email ${emailToFind}`);
throw new Error(`No user found with email ${emailToFind}`); // Stop the Zap execution if no user is found
}

Hi @smombartz 

Good question.

Have you checked (try scrolling) to see if there are other data points returned from Zap Step 2 that may be more suitable to use containing the email address? (search by @ which will indicate an email address)

Hey there @smombartz!

Welcome to the Zapier community!

Your JavaScript looks correct, but it seems the Full Response Data from your webflow step is showing a URL, not JSON data.

One piece of data from your Webflow step should look the the JSON data below. That is what you should be pulling into your code step. If you don’t see JSON like in the below code, let me know and I can help you troubleshoot further :)

thanks @Troy Tessalone and @Todd Harper – was an easy fix after all!

 

in the rather long list i did find a Request Body object mixed in with all the other options which had all the data as JSON!
