Thank you for responding, however I don't think any of those suggestions really help me.
What I want to do is create a jotform, then post each of the fields in my form to an external API.
Not to a php or any other webpage, not to another jotform, no webhooks, just a REST API call. The Api link you listed is the API jotform, I meant another website API from a jotform.
You cannot create custom API calls directly from the JotForm forms. You would have to follow the recommendation that my colleague Mike has provided, and 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.
Please take a look at the guide on Sending-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page. You will then use this data in your custom script to perform the custom function that you are after (your API call), in a manner similar to how-we-can-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP.
I hope this helps.
Mike and Boris,
Thank you both for your help.
It is clear now.
On behalf of my colleagues, Mike and Boris, you are welcome. Please feel free to contact us again if you have any other questions.
