To pull data from the Parsehub API to Google Sheets, first install and open the Apipheny Google Sheets add-on.
Apipheny is a no-code API integrator for Google Sheets that you can use to make unlimited API requests, connect to unlimited APIs, save API requests, schedule API requests, and more.
1. Install Apipheny by opening the following link in on desktop and then clicking the Install button on the page: https://gsuite.google.com/marketplace/app/apipheny_api_tool/966163326746
2. After you’ve installed Apipheny, open a Google Sheet and then click on the Add-Ons or Extensions option in the top menu. In the add-ons menu, you should see Apipheny.
Click Apipheny > Import API to open the Apipheny sidebar in your Google Sheets.
After logging into your Parsehub account, click your username link:
In the drop-down menu, click the Account item:
Your API key will be displayed in the Account section. Copy and paste your API key in a safe location because you will need it in the next steps.
If you already know your URL, or you want to use the same example URL as us, just skip to Step 4.
First, open the Parsehub API documentation page: https://www.parsehub.com/docs/ref/api/v2/
The menu on the left contains several sections, out of which Methods contains the API’s endpoints:
If you click the Methods section you will find a list of endpoints for this API:
An example API URL and endpoint is Run a project, which will start running an instance of the specified project on the ParseHub cloud:
The endpoint’s documentation contains a short description of its purpose, the endpoint’s HTTP method (eg. POST), the URI, a list of the accepted parameters, and example request as a cURL command and an associated example response:
Now go back to your Google Sheet and make sure that the Apipheny add-on is open on the “Import” tab. With the Import tab open, enter these details into the add-on:
API URL: In Step 3, we explained how you can find the Parsehub REST API endpoint that you need. Now copy and paste your complete Parsehub API URL into the Apipheny add-on, where it says API URL Path, followed by any parameters required for your query (if applicable).
For this example, we are using the List all projects endpoint, which gets the list of projects in your account. This is what the whole URL looks like:
Finally, the last step is to click the Run button at the bottom of the Apipheny add-on and then wait for the Parsehub API data to be imported into your Google Sheet. Here’s what our request looked like when completed:
After making a successful request to the Parsehub API, try querying a different Parsehub API endpoint, or try using one of the more advanced features in the Apipheny add-on, such as:
