Zapier integration structure

Zapier’s Developer Platform includes everything needed to build and manage a new Zapier integration. When you access your integration project by name, you’ll see the left sidebar outlines the core project structure.


Dashboard tab is used to monitor and analyze your integration’s growth, usage, and embed metrics. You must be an admin or collaborator to view an integration’s dashboard.

Build tab defines your integration:

  • Version Overview shows the outline of the version selected in the dropdown
  • Authentication sets how users authenticate with your API; using basic, API key, digest, session, or OAuth v2 authentication.
  • Triggers control how Zapier gets data from your API into a Zap, with GET HTTP calls or REST Hooks.
  • Actions control how Zapier sends data to your API, including:
    • Create Actions to send new data from a Zap to your API, with POST or PUT HTTP calls to create or update items.
    • Search Actions to perform lookups through your API using GET calls.
  • Advanced manages environment variables to store secret values your integration needs to communicate with your API, such as API keys or client IDs and secrets, or manage switching between staging and production environments in a version.

When planning your integration build, think through your integration and what features from your app your users might find the most valuable. Review integration design examples by app category for inspiration.

Walk through building an integration with the UI tutorial or the CLI tutorial.


Manage tab is where you access tools to maintain your integration:

  • Versions gives an overview of each version’s status, user activity and for published apps; the changelog included in a promotion
  • Sharing is where you give users access to private versions via an invite link to all versions or an email invite to a specific version
  • Manage Team is used to add team members to manage your integration
  • Monitoring gives access to logs for requests made to your API by your Zapier integration
  • History shows the 50 most recent audit logs for changes to your integration
  • Bugs & Feature Requests are reported by users for published apps and should be used to communicate on these issues with Zapier Developer Support


Embed tab shows for public integrations only and describes a variety of ways to surface your Zapier integration directly within your own product. It allows your users to search for apps that connect with yours, see popular workflows used with your app, and (most importantly) enables them to sign up for Zapier, build Zaps and edit them, too — without leaving your product.
