zapier integration

Hi,

sorry to bother you in a private conversation. I want to integrate mautic with zapier and the only show stopper is that my apps have to know lead ids as the zapier mautic plugin can’t do searches. You explained already in https://www.mautic.org/community/index.php/254-zapier-integration that there’s a problem with zapier vs. mautic’s searches. Can you elaborate more on the problem? Perhaps I can contribute to find the 80% solution that works.

Hi,

The problem is actually to do with the fact that Mautic provides no external API to search for a lead. If you wanted to add that in and get it merged into the core code then it would be possible. Where do your leads originate from? For example a Mautic form, how do you get the lead into Mautic in the first place? I’m sure that there is somewhere along the way that you can pull the lead id out from.

Is the API doc wrong or is outdated: https://developer.mautic.org/?php#list-leads . Our process is: An app throws an event on a message bus (SNS), the devs connect this to a mautic queue (SQS). Mautic picks up the message and and does it#s thing. The important part is that the app is driving the process. It just generates the user_id and puts it on the bus. Any further action has just this reference. So I’d like mautic to search for this user_id and update the lead…

I think that must be new. I will have a go adding it in.

Previously the issue was the Zapier rejects anything more than 4000 records being returned from a poll so the searching couldn’t be done on the Zapier side.

Wow. that would be nice! Can I help you somehow? It’s a show stopper for one of my projects …

Thank you very much! Works perfectly. Bye
