Using the API

  • Core APIs allow you to pick a specific response and process it based on the output you are looking for
  • After selecting the API, you may see a set of further inputs needed by the selected API, start typing or click on the input field to see options available from previous API calls
  • The search results pulls data from previous calls and categorizes it by the API call and provider, making it easy to select.
  • In this example, we are extracting the email address to send to an internal API
