Hi,

I’m building a workflow to debug some Zapier tasks. Within the workflow I collect different variables from the trigger service and at the end, it send me a DM in slack with this information. 

When using Slack, Zapier has the option to “Include A Link To This Zap”, which is fine for debugging, but what I’d like to have is the option to include a link to the Zap run. Do you know if there is a way to get this information and add it, maybe as data, to the task?

 

Thank you

Hi @hector-paz 

Zapier doesn’t offer an API yet.

Zapier Manager will be the closest thing to get the Zap Runs link: https://zapier.com/apps/zapier-manager/integrations

Hi!

I just found out a solution to my own question. There is a “Sub zap by Zapier” integration, that triggers a Zap from another Zap. The Sub-Zap will receive a parent_task_history_link value from the parent Zap, which contains the link to the run.
 



You can return this value to the parent task in the “Return From a Sub-Zap” step as an output value:

 

Return from a Sub-Zap example

 

It works and it can be reused by other Zaps to get the link to the run for debugging purposes, and avoid having to browse the history and find the run.

 

Thank you!
