    Do you provide an api login?

    Asked by csol_jotform on February 02, 2017 at 06:25 PM

    Do you have an api for login or a way for our users to be able to login automatically? We have a portal for our staff members to use which redirects them to Jotform. Is it possible for us to connect automatically to your site via an api? We previously redirect the users to your site via the https://www.jotform.com/server.php URL but we are now getting a "You are not authorized to use this resource" error.

    Kind regards and speak soon,

    Yes, that is possible via the API. Please see our API documentation here on achieve your requirement: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#user-login 

    If you like, you can also use Jotform Anywhere to embed the form builder to your website. Here's the link: https://www.jotform.com/anywhere/

    At the moment, I can log my self on the Js API using the api :

        apiKey: '123456'


    By when using JotForm Anywhere, I can't find a way to authenticate myself using an apiKey. Is there a way ? Thanks !

    When you use JotForm anywhere, it will automatically recognize your session, for example, if you're logged-in into the JotForm site, then you will see your account already opened in the form builder. If you're not logged-in then a guest account will be created, you can still receive your submissions on your email address, but an account would need to be created if you need to access the submissions through the JotForm site.
