Hiding the API Token in a URL Button

  • 1.  Hiding the API Token in a URL Button

    Hi,

    I would like to make the API token in a URL button unavailable to EOTI users. This button uses API_AddRecord to push a record into a "Notification" table which autogenerates an email to the EOTI user. However, i must include the API Token as part of the button, any tips or tricks?

    I do not think that it will be possible to hide the URL so I think that you need to employ someone else, like an 007 secret undercover agent to do your dirty work.

    I would have the user update a field(s) on an EOTI record and then have that trigger an Automation to actually add the record to some other table.

    As always, thanks mark!

    Just had to make it so that the user is ejected from the record.
