Thank you Levon! Good to know! Also for all who may be new to API’s and Bubble etc. Levon and I had a solid conversation around how to get these plugins and others similar to this to work within our apps. I’ve copied the convo below:
Levon: When plugin is implemented through oAuth2 then your users can authenticate and their (Slack, Twilio etc) accounts and access their data. I have added these ideas to our roadmap. We are currently working on Hubspot and Google Calendar (creating events) and then we’ll get to one of the plugins you suggested. Thanks!
Me: Good to know. One last questions. So essentially they login to Treefort (my app) and I then can have a page for them to connect their account. I would then use the Login with API action for that plugin as a workflow. That would then make the connection? From their it’s about piling the data. Am I correct lol? Will it stay connected or do they need to reconnect each time? Thanks for the quick help! Excited to explore!
Levon: Hi Dennis, everything clear except that i’m not sure about staying connected. In my tests with Google Contacts i had to click the login button after some time again in order for contacts in the repeating group to reappear.
It’s not good though, not sure if it’s a bug, or it’s true only with Google API.
Me: Good to know. I think I have read where some sites make you reconnect for security reasons.
Last question. So with the data that gets retrieved from these services does it save to bubbles database or is it just referenced? Or can I choose to save it to a field or not? Helpful for sure!
