HTTP POST to retrieve JSON

Hi there,


I'm trying to access the Vision6 API from Supermetrics for Google Sheets and the Custom JSON/CSV connector, but I'm not having much luck. 


The settings I'm trying with are...

URL - [hidden to protect the identity of my employer]

Data type - JSON

Request - {

    "id": 1,

    "method": "searchBatches",

    "params": [

        "{{API Key}}"

    ]

}

HTTP headers - Content-Type: application/json


Just wanted to ask... does Supermetrics only support GET or does it support POST as well? I think that might be the only thing that's going astray...


Any help would be appreciated!

  • It would be great for the team to answer those questions

  • Pretty late answer, but my same question, i've asked in the forum a couple of days ago, is still without an answer too. But, once filed a ticket, i did got an answer fully matching my needs:

    As you see at the attached screenshot, the field "Request" serves exactly for this purpose: the POST request body should be inserted there:




    Some APIs need indeed an explicite setting of Content-Type: application/JSON - the field "HTTP Headers" is the place for it.

  • Essentially GET is used to retrieve remote data, and POST is used to insert/update remote dataGET retrieves a representation of the specified resource and include all required data in the URL. You should be able to request the same URL over and over harmlessly.
