One of the most popular email services, Gmail keeps track of all your emails with threaded conversations, tags, and Google-powered search to find any message you need.

Use the Gmail Connector

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

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

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

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

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Gmail 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 Gmail 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 Gmail API calls.

Integrate Gmail into your application logic

The Zenaton connector is a pre-configured task for calling the Gmail 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 gmail 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");
// gmail authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("ParallelWorkflow", function* () {
  const gmail = this.connector(
    'gmail',
    '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 gmail.get('path_to_API');
  } else {
    yield this.run.task('TaskD');
  }
});

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// gmail authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const gmail = this.connector(
    'gmail',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.gmail.post('path_to_API');
  yield run.task('TaskB');
  yield this.run.task('TaskD');
});
// Tasks can be automatically (or manually) retried and executions are displayed in real-time on the Zenaton dashboard.
const { workflow, duration } = require("zenaton");

// gmail authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const gmail = this.connector(
    'gmail',

  yield this.run.task('TaskA');

// The 'wait function is managed by the Zenaton engine and will be executed on your worker at the right time.

    // Wait for up to 24 hours for the event using the Zenaton Wait Function.
    const event = yield this.wait.event("MyEvent").for(duration.hours(24));
    if (event) {
      // If event has been triggered within 24 hours
      yield this.run.task('TaskA');
