Custom API Integration

Custom API empowers users to craft custom API calls to any external system, granting them unparalleled flexibility and customization options. 


Understanding APIs

APIs, or Application Programming Interfaces, serve as the bridge between different software applications, allowing them to communicate and share data seamlessly. They enable developers to access the features or data of one application from another application, without needing to understand the underlying code.

How APIs Facilitate Communication

APIs act as the intermediary between the client and server, enabling them to communicate effectively. Here's how it works:


Harnessing the Power of Custom API

viaSocket's Custom API feature takes the concept of APIs to new heights by allowing users to create their own custom API calls in their workflows. This means users can define the specific actions they want to perform with external systems, tailored to their unique requirements.


Whether you need to fetch data, send information, update resources, or delete records, Custom API puts the power in your hands. But before diving in, it's crucial to understand the components of an API:

1. Endpoints: These are the URLs through which you access the API's functionalities.

2. Methods: Different methods dictate the type of action you want to perform:

3. Parameters: Query parameters refine the data or resources included in the response.

4. Headers: Headers define aspects like response format, authentication credentials, or caching instructions.

Crafting Your Custom API Calls

To integrate Custom API into your workflows, start by consulting the reference documentation of the target API. Understand its endpoints, methods, parameters, and data formats. This clarity enables you to design custom API calls tailored to your specific needs. 

📌 For Example, below is the Typeform Retrieve Responses GET API which returns form responses and date and time of form landing and submission. Here, you have to fill each form's form_id in the API URL to specify forms and also include your Access Token in Headers.

You can use chips to dynamically change form id from previous steps in workflows.

Test the API to get the response below and once everything is set up and ready to go, click update to integrate this custom API call in your workflow. 

You can now use the viasocket’s in-built tool Function and IF conditional to create more customized workflows.


The true power of viaSocket's Custom API feature lies in its ability to unlock new possibilities for workflow automation. From data synchronization and task automation to information retrieval and resource management, the applications are virtually limitless.

In conclusion, viaSocket's Custom API feature empowers businesses to harness the full potential of APIs for workflow automation. By providing a platform for creating personalized API calls, viaSocket enables businesses to streamline operations, improve efficiency, and drive innovation. Embrace the power of viaSocket's Custom API feature and transform your workflows for the better.
