I am creating a new app on Zapier for our company Shipup. The goal of the app is to simplify the connection of our webhooks to other apps on Zapier. Here is an example of the logic we would like to follow:
- We receive a new “event” from one of our partner
- We send a webhook to the URL specified by the client (a zap url in this case)
- The Zap is configured to run specific actions according to the payload of the webhook
The issue is that Zapier seems to force a user authentification when creating a new app but we don’t have any since we are only using webhooks. So I’m blocked on the first phase of the app creation and can’t find the option to set the authentification to “no-auth“.
Would anyone from the community be able to provide some guidance on how to navigate around this issue?

@baptiste_shipup - You can just remove authentication altogether. Are you building the app in the Platform UI? If so and you’re trying to test an action, just ignore the authentication button and go ahead to run the test. When there’s no authentication method, it should run just fine.
@ikbelkirasan ! I have indeed been able to configure my app using the Platform UI and test it with a first Zap without any authentification and it’s working fine. But it seems that I won’t be able to publish it if I don’t pick any authentification (see picture attached).
Step 1: Configure your Fields
In the input fields list, add a field and set its key to “name” and label to “Name”.
Step 2: Configure a Test Request & Connection Label
Step 3: Test your Authentication
Now you can test the authentication, you’ll be asked to fill in the name field. Its value will be used as a connection label.
