Create a function to call an API

Hi everyone!


Last month, I created a connection to an API where there was a list (format = text) and the function modified the Relative Path to call the API with every single element of the list and worked perfectly.




Now I'm trying to do the same for a different data source but with this new one, I need to add the authorization input. I tried to do it but I was not able to find the way to create the function bearing in mind the authorization. How could I do it to generate the function adding the authorization (it's always the same no matter the Game ID)?


Example of the API call for a simple game (it's what I want to create a function like the one above for this website, with the authorization input included in the call function):




Thank you so much for your time.

Hi @lbendlin 


If you agree, I can share you the info of the API though Direct Message and we see how to do it. It's from a public site so nothing impossible to share. Let me know here or on private.


Thank you so much for your time.

we can give that a try.

You likely will have to run a separate API call to collect the bearer token.

Hi @lbendlin 


Could you share an example about how to do it? So I guess I should do an API call for the authorizer, save the result into a variable and then, do the 2nd API Call, adding the variable to the call?


Thank you for your time.

That's correct.  As you can probably appreciate it is nearly impossible to help with API queries without access to said API  (which you may not be willing to provide for understandable reasons). You're on your own here.
