Making API requests

An overview of HTTP request

To quickly connect a custom API, use HTTP Request Builder. You can make GET request to visualize order data in the Table component or POST request to reset a password for a specific user.

Watch the video below on how to get API Builder set up!

There are two options for creating API requests via Data or Visual Builder.

To open the API Builder from the Table, follow the steps:

  1. From the UI Builder, drag-and-drop Table to the Canvas

  2. Select Rest API as Data Source in Data

  3. Select Make Http request as Collection

Pass Values to API Builder

To pass Values to API Builder, such as charge you need to specify Inputs. To do it, follow the steps:

  1. Add new Input field in the API Builder

  2. Specify the test value

  3. Pass the Input value of the key in the column Value

  4. Click on the Run button to send a request

  5. Click on the Save button to save it

APIs like to send data back in pages. By default, you only get 1 page. You will need to ask for more. In your API docs, there should be a section called Pagination.
