    Hi, is there a way to interact with an rest API?I want a simple way of having users signup, a form comes to mind, but i need to sent the data to an API and as far as i can see the webhooks cant take variables in them right?

    Thank you for contacting us. I recommend checking also on the following link to know more about the API and Webhooks

    1. http://api.jotform.com/docs/

    2. Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    3. Creating-your-first-Webhook-with-JotForm

    You cannot create custom API calls directly from the JotForm forms.

    You would have to set up a custom PHP Thank You page to receive the data from JotForm, and make your own API call to the external service from that PHP page.
