Hey all, 

We’re building a Zapier app, and in the authentication step for our app, we’re creating the below response which is fine:


I know that you can use 


to pull in the auth data in later api calls for triggers/actions, I thought so anyways?!

How could I call the field “adalo_id” with the bundle.authData into my action or trigger api calls? 

I tried both




but those are not working…

More precisely, I need to get the “adalo_id” and place it at the end of the url for the endpoint in my api call/settings for a trigger, see below code >

// Configure a request to an endpoint of your api that
// returns custom field meta data for the authenticated
// user. Don't forget to congigure authentication!

const options = {
url: '{{bundle.authData.adalo_id}}',
method: 'GET',
headers: {
'Accept': 'application/json',
'Authorization': 'Bearer 7xxxxxxx7yvhxxxxxxxb5xxxxx'
params: {


return z.request(options)
.then((response) => {


What am I missing or how can I do this?

Thank you!!!

Assuming you’re using OAuth or Session type authentication - have a look at adding those as “computed fields”

Just wanted to follow up here as noticed @MichaelNCS also reached out to our Support Team about this and they identified the reason why the call to the “adalo_id” field wasn’t working.

It appears that it’s not possible to use computed fields with the API Key authentication method. In order to access a computed field, the OAuth v2 or Session Auth method would need to be used instead.

The following guides go into more detail on working with Computed Fields, OAuth v2 and Session Auth:
