Use dynamic dropdowns in Platform CLI

What are Dynamic Dropdowns?

API endpoints sometimes require clients to specify a parent object in order to create or access the child resources, for instance, specifying a spreadsheet ID in order to retrieve its worksheets. Since people don’t speak in auto-incremented ID’s, Zapier offers a simple way for users to select that parent object using human readable handles.

Zapier does that with a dropdown that is populated by making a live API call to fetch a list of parent objects. We call these special dropdowns “dynamic dropdowns.”

More details about implementing dynamic dropdowns in your integration can be found in our CLI Docs.
