Actions for endpoints with no body

  • 22 December 2020

I am creating an app in Zapier.

My API has several endpoints that do not return a body. When I run Zapier's validation, I get a "Must have a static sample" warning, which in theory prevents the app to be published.

Is it possible to have actions without output in Zapier, and how do I do it?

Hi @Michele Dorigatti - When the API endpoint doesn’t return anything, don’t return the API response but instead just return an object that contains one key.

For example:

return {
success: true

Hi @ikbelkirasan ! I am a colleague of Michele. We adopted your solutions, but I think Zapier should natively support endpoints that do not return a body, since it is a perfectly accetable, and sometimes more appropriate.
