Authentication with Zapier

In order for Zapier to communicate with Sugar Calendar on your website, you will need to authenticate Zapier with Sugar Calendar.

First, navigate to WP Admin → Calendar → Settings → Zapier. On this screen will be your API keys that will be entered into Zapier in the next step.

There are two API keys:

  • Public Key
  • Token

These will be entered in the respective fields on Zapier.com when prompted.

Second, log into Zapier.com, click on My Apps and then click Add Connection. In the pop up, type Sugar Calendar:

Clicking on Sugar Calendar will then trigger another popup asking you to authenticate your website with Zapier:

Here you will enter the Public Key and the Token from the Zapier settings tab of your Sugar Calendar installation. You will also enter your site URL. Please enter it with the full http:// or https:// and do not include a trailing slash.

For example:

  • Correct: https://yoursite.com
  • Correct: https://www.yoursite.com
  • Incorrect: http://yoursite.com/
  • Incorrect: yoursite.com
  • Incorrect: yoursite.com/
  • Incorrect: www.yoursite.com

Once all three fields have been entered, click Yes, Continue. Zapier will then tell you if the connection was successful. As soon as the authentication has succeeded, you are ready to create your first Zap!
