Just click on the dropdown menu and choose your method you wish to use:

You can choose between GET, POST, PUT, PATCH, and DELETE.

Step 3.) Enter your API URL and choose a Content Type

Once you’ve chosen your method, you can proceed to enter your API URL, parameters, and headers (if applicable).

If you choose the POST, PUT, or PATCH request method, you will see two new fields appear called Body and Content Type:

The default Content Type is application/json, but there are several options to choose from. Just click the dropdown to see all the options:

  • application/json
  • application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  • application/xml
  • text/plain
  • text/html
  • multipart/form-data
  • or you can enter a custom content type

Step 4.) Enter the Body

If you have a body you need to send in your API request, make sure to enter it in the Body field.

Here is an example of a POST body with application/json content type:

{
  "parameter1": value1,
  "parameter2": value2,
  "parameter3": value3,
  "parameter4": value4
}

Here is an example of a POST body with the application/x-www-form-urlencoded content type (no brackets):

"parameter"="value","paramater2"="value2",
"parameter3"="value3"

Step 5.) Run your request

Once you’ve entered all the required components of your API request into Apipheny, the last step is to click the Run button at the bottom of the add-on and your request will start processing.

That’s it! Making API requests in your Google Sheets is easy with Apipheny. And best of all, there’s no coding required.
