    Hi Sreemouni,

    Currently, we do not have a standard API per se, but you can configure your form to send the submissions post data to a custom php page which will then dump the information onto your own database.

    To configure your form to send post data:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click the Preferences button
    3.  Click Advanced Settings tab
    4.  Select Yes in the Send Post Data dropdown


    To set your custom PHP page as the Thank You url:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed
    2.  Click Thank You button
    3.  Select Custom URL then click Next
    4.  Enter the URL of your php page then click Finish



    For starters, you may use this php code to learn about the structure of your form's post data:
