What is your feature/integration request?
The ability to store an APIToken as a Var somewhere then reference that Var in subsequent API import steps.
What problem would this feature/integration solve?
I’m pulling data from an app called Marketman. It uses an OAuth 2.0 that doesn’t match Parabola’s spec, so I need to authenticate via API token (using a key and password). I currently have to create a flow exclusively for generating the API key, and then use that key in a separate flow that pulls data from Marketman. Ideally, the first step in my flow would check the status of the key, generate a new one if expired, and store it as a VAR that I could reference in downstream steps. This would keep the flow running with no manual intervention.
How do you solve/workaround this problem today?
This wouldn’t be a problem if I only had to do this once. However, the tokens expire after 7 days. As it stands, l need to manually generate a new token and update my data request flow with that token info to keep my flow functioning.
You guys are awesome. Parabola is the future.
