OVERVIEW

App APIs let you extend the capabilities of what can be done in Zap steps beyond the available Zap app triggers and actions.

App APIs can have 100s of endpoints.

Zap apps generally only expose the most common/popular endpoints from their API as Zap triggers/actions.

  • Zap app triggers that use APIs are scheduled via data polling from GET requests.
  • Zap app actions that use APIs involve these API methods. (GET, PATCH, POST, PUT, DELETE)
