    I want to submit my external (a form web application on another server, example Heroku), to Jotform tables so that I can move some information from my server to Jotform, AUTOMATICALLY without human intervention. Is it possible to dump my form data to Jotform?

    If the data already exists, then it cannot be automatic. You have to download them in Excel or CSV format then import it to the form using this method: https://www.jotform.com/help/308-import-app-easily-import-your-excel-or-csv-data-into-jotform/

    Now, if you mean you want future submissions to be sent to a Jotform, it's possible but you may need to get your hands dirty in building custom scripts to do that - usually, PHP or Javascript.

    You can use our API to POST a submission to the form: https://api.jotform.com/docs/#post-form-id-submissions. It can be coded so for example once your web application is submitted, it will then trigger the Jotform API to create the submission to Jotform with the values from the said web application.
