Overview

wufoosubdomain

To authenticate Wufoo, you’ll need your subdomain and your API key.

To find the subdomain, you will need to first log into Wufoo. Once logged in, you can simply copy the subdomain from the your URL bar. Your URL will have the form “https://your-subdomain.wufoo.com".

Alternatively, you can click on Account at the top right-hand side of the menu and then “My Account” and you’ll see:

wufooauthentication

To find your API key, form’s hash, or field API IDs, just open the API information for your form:

  1. Log in and go to Forms.
  2. To the right of the form, hover over More and click API Information.
  3. Copy your API Key, or look at the table to find your form’s hash or field API IDs.

    Events

    • New Entry

      Runs the FLO whenever there is a new entry for a form. This event uses a webhook so there is no need to set how often to check Wufoo – the FLO should run as soon as the new entry is added.

      Every time a FLO is activated using this card Wufoo will be checked for a corresponding Webhook. If a Webhook doesn’t exist, then this card will create a new Webhook. Different Wufoo plans have different limits on the amount of Webhooks they can use. If the card isn’t able to create a Webhook, then it will fail to activate. To fix this error Webhooks in Wufoo need to be deleted.

      Options

      • Your Forms:  Choose from the dropdown the Wufoo form you want to monitor.

      Output Fields

      • EntryID (text):  The ID that Wufoo uses to refer to the new entry. To get the values that were entered into the form, you’ll need to add a Read Entry card to your FLO and then pass this ID into the ID input on the Read Entry card.

      • Execution ID (text):  This output field appears on every event card and is the unique ID to identify the execution instance (primarily used for advanced debugging purposes).
