Use the Sendgrid Connector

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

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

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

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

The Zenaton Engine

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

Integrate Sendgrid into your application logic

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

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

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

    // 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');
