FAQs

  • Why do you need to block the iframe embed by default? This is a more secure option!
  • Why do I need to provide Zapier with a list of domains I intend to embed Zapier in? We’ll use this to permit these specific domains to embed our product.
  • Which domains are appropriate and which ones are not, if any? We do not support wildcard, or other patterns, within domains. Being explicit about the specific domains ensures we do not inadvertedly allow custom/user domains from being permitted. Example: {username}.github.io is a scheme used by Github to allow any user to create their own websites. In this example, only github.io would be permitted but not any subdomain of that domain. Moreover, the domains provided by you should be registered with your company with a public registrar. That is to say a randomcnamedomain.com is not valid for the same reason that a user or bad actor could register that domain.
  • What about when I’m developing the embed? Indeed this is tricky because localhost, yourcomp.local and 127.0.0.1 are not valid domains that we support. An option would be to use a tunnel service like ngrok and to register that ngrok tunnel with us. Be advised, that we will ask for a static domain from ngrok.com or similar tunneling service.
  • What if my product requires wildcard support (e.g. {account}.myproduct.com)? While this is unsupported, we’d like to chat with you to understand your use case and to discuss other options.
