What are Actions?
Actions are “things” that happen on your WordPress website such as publishing a new post, a WooCommerce order is updated, a new user is registered, a new product is added, a form is submitted and so on.
Actions are a no-code automation tool, allowing you to automate sending data to your APIs.
If you can’t find the action you need, just let us know and we will add it to the plugin.
Actions can be run on many core WordPress actions as well as popular WordPress plugins such as:
- Easy Digital Downloads
- Paid Memberships Pro
- Elementor Forms
- Gravity Forms
- Contact Form 7
- Formidable Forms
How do Actions work?
After installing the PRO plugin, you will see a new field within each endpoint called Actions. Select your Action and hit save, and then every time that particular Action happens on your site, your endpoint will be called.
Some Actions contain extra fields which will appear once you select that Action. Thees extra fields give you further configuration options.
All Actions run in the background, so an action is best used when you need to send data to an API via POST, PUT, DELETE or PATCH methods. An Action will not display API data to the user.
Sending values related to the Action
When an Action is run, there will be values related to the Action that can be sent to your API.
