Is there a method in the API to get the different field ID's?Asked by davem on June 29, 2016 at 12:43 PM
I've got a web app that we are looking to integrate with Jotform, and to make it easier on the users, when they fill out a form like a support request, we would like to pass the username from our system to the form. I've seen where it can be done with the url query, but I was hoping to find a way to get a full list of the ID's so an admin can map fields from our app to the appropriate questions on a form without the risk of mistyping something.
I'm not sure if fully understood your question, but I can see it's possible to get the names of fields in a form with the API, for example, I just have tried with this code:
$form = $jotformAPI-> getFormQuestions(61756142981966);
I got an array with questions in the form as well as all their data, here is the link to the form that I'm testing: https://form.jotform.com/61756142981966
The result is currently looking like this:
I think doing this you will be able to get each name of the needed questions in a form, here is a link to our API documentation that may help you with this: http://api.jotform.com/docs/#form-id-questions
