Problem with Jotform-Zapier integration

    Asked on March 07, 2017 at 08:57 AM


    I´ve been trying to connect Zapier and Jotform, but i´ve run into this problem:



    I´ve already seen this forum question and tried every option described in it, but the problem persist. I think the problem might be the API limit, so i would like to kindly ask you for help, and see if reseting the API limit could be a way to solve this problem.

    Hope to hear from you soon. 

    Thanks in advance!

    I  have tested this on my end and I can see it works fine, I was able to complete the JotForm integration just fine on Zapier:

    Upon checking the account's owner of the form you shared, I can see there's not any API key, what I would suggest you is to delete the JotForm account in your Zapier account and then connect it again, this should generate the new API key and connect successfully both accounts. 

    This article will help you to delete connected apps on Zapier: 

    Once you reconnect your JotForm account with Zapier you can check it on your JotForm account under the API section: 

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Kevin, 

    Thanks for the answer! When i test it, i get the same answer, but then, after clicking "view your submission" i get an error message: Code 401 / Fields with no value: desc


    I have already filled forms in Jotform, so that is not the problem. And regarding de API key, there is not any because it doesn´t generate itself automatically when i connect the Zapier App. When should i then create it? (I have also already tried by disconnecting and reconnecting the accounts several times)

    I have further tested this and found that shared forms do not appear on the form's list, so you need to add the form's  account owner to get the form and this is may be why I cannot see the API key when I checked the form's account vyabogados, you could try adding this account and fetch the form from there. Testing with another JotForm account I can see it works as well. 

    I have also checked the API keys for your account  luvillos and found that your key ending in 2093 was used 997 times, this may be also causing the current problem in connection you're getting since free accounts are able to make 1,000 API calls per day. I have reset the limit so you can also try now. 

    The API key should be generated when you connect the Zapier app to the JotForm account, also if you would require to have more calls per day then you will need to upgrade your account, here're the limits  per account: 

    Free: 1000

    Bronze: 10,000

    Silver: 50,000

    Gold: 100,000

    Platinum: 1,000,000

    Hope this helps.
