What is the API key and when do I need it?

The API key is a secret token that is used to identify the origin of a request. Each 123FormBuilder account has an API key that can be found in the My AccountAccount Details section. In case you cannot find it, you’ll need to generate it by pressing the Create now button.

123FormBuilder what is the API Key

You need this API Key in three main situations:

1. When you want to publish your forms on certain platforms, such as WordPress, Joomla or Sitefinity.

2. When you want to integrate your forms with certain 3rd party apps (e.g. Zapier).

3. When you want to use our API in your own development endeavors.

For points 2 and 3, the number of API calls that you can use in a day is very important.

* Note: If you find certain limitations to the API key, please contact us.

  1. Hi, we
    just built a web site on the Wix platform to connect to our warehouse management system and I have added and customized a 123 form to our site! Now my question; In order to process the new customer registration/ order on our web site and connect the customer account to our warehouse portal, we must connect to (Wix-API) or (123 form builder-API) ???

    1. Hello Mow. You will need to add a script on the form which will send the submissions data to your own warehouse management system. To add a script to your form you will need our Platinum Plan. The script will be placed in your form’s Settings – Advanced section – Form Tab – Add a JS script to your form.
      For API integrations you will need to use 123 Form Builder API since we are a thrid-party app on Wix website.

  2. Is there anyway to make it so that the fields that are clicked on my employee forms update my quick books client accounts so I don’t have to enter it manually? Could it automatically enter charges from my reoccurring charges list on QuickBooks?

  3. Dears,

    I would like to use your form to submit the information to an external API.

    How can I do so?

    Thanks,

    Patrick

    1. Hello Patrick!

      Have a look in our API documentation section and see if any you can find your answer there. Your account has an API key which you can use for external operations, such as retrieving form submissions from 123FormBuilder to your own database. Read more at http://wix.123formbuilder.com/docs/123formbuilder-api-retrieve-submissions/.

      For more questions or assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our support specialists at support@123formbuilder.com or via our contact form.

      Thanks!
