Google Contacts API

Google Contacts, the address book built into Gmail, lets you keep track of all your contacts, see when you last interacted with them, and more.

Use the Google Contacts Connector

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

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

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

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

The Zenaton Engine

We handle the complexity of orchestrating Google Contacts 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 Google Contacts 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 Google Contacts API calls.

Integrate Google Contacts into your application logic

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

const { workflow } = require("zenaton");
// google contacts authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("AsynchronousWorkflow", function* () {
  const google contacts = this.connector(
    'google contacts',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );
  this.run.task('TaskA');
  this.google contacts.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");

// google contacts authentification on Zenaton
module.exports = workflow("WaitWorkflow", function* () {
  const google contacts = this.connector(
    'google contacts',
    'your-connector-id-from-zenaton-dashboard'
  );

  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.

module.exports = workflow("WaitEventWorkflow", function*() {

  );
    // 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');
