Use the Crunchbase Connector

Add the crunchbase connector on your Zenaton dashboard,
enter the credentials and authorize Zenaton to call the crunchbase API from your workflows.
Then add code snippet and URL path to your workflow.

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");

module.exports = workflow("MyWorkflow", function* () {
const crunchbase = this.connector(
'crunchbase', 'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard');

const response = yield crunchbase.get('path_to_API');
yield crunchbase.post('path_to_API', {param1: '...'});
});

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Crunchbase API calls and related logic in your code.

Out of the Box API Call

Add the connector to your Zenaton workflow and we manage the authentication, oauth1 and oauth2 flow including token refreshing.

Automatic Retries & Alerting

If your Crunchbase API call fails, it can automatically be retried and you will receive an alert with error details.

Monitoring and Troubleshooting

View the Zenaton dashboard for execution history, scheduled tasks, errors and logs or retry failed Crunchbase API calls.

Integrate Crunchbase into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Crunchbase API inside your workflow with one line of code. Build custom integration logic by adding a workflow directly into your application using the functions in the Zenaton SDK.

// The Zenaton engine orchestrates crunchbase API calls and related logic via the Zenaton agent. Every step is executed at the right moment on your servers and monitored on Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// crunchbase authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const crunchbase = this.connector(
    'crunchbase',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
// execute parallel tasks handled automatically by the Zenaton engine 
  const [a, b] = yield this.run.task(["TaskA"],["TaskB"]);
  if (a > b) {
    const response = yield crunchbase.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
