Enter an API endpoint URL to test authentication credentials, ideally one needing no configuration such as /me.

Hi @peacetoallsouls - This should be any endpoint from your API that requires an authenticated user. Ideally, as pointed out by @AndrewJDavison_Luhhu , it should be one that retrieves the authenticated user profile info. Also, I wanted to add that you can use the output from this test to add a connection label. For example, a test endpoint returns the following object.

The connection label field is configured like this:

Hi @peacetoallsouls

Here you should put the the URL of any endpoint from the API you’re trying to connect with. Ideally one that doesn’t require any input parameters - so perhaps one that retrieves account/profile information.

Which API is it?

Hi there, @peacetoallsouls - it looks like your question is about building an integration for Zapier, I've moved it to the Developer Discussion category so that it gets the right eyes on it 😊
