I have been using a trigger in Ghost and directly republish it to my Medium account for a while now. In January, I am getting this error: “Private App. This step uses a private app. In order to use it you must be invited by the app creator. This app is private and no longer available”

 

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Hi @Cat Lo 

You can search Zap apps here: https://zapier.com/apps

I see Ghost, but I don’t see Medium.

That may mean the Medium Zap app was removed/discontinued.

:( thank you…..

When the app is removed, the other way is to make an API call.

You can check the Medium API and use Zapier action to call the appropriate endpoint for reposting.

Hi @Cat Lo,

It looks like Medium has shut down their API and it’s no longer available.

I wish I had better news for you here, but does that help clarify things a bit? Please let me know if there's anything else you have questions on! 
 

Unfortunate. 😞 now i have to manually cross-post.

I really appreciate you both on investigating on this detail.
