Front API Integrations

Build and run workflows using the Front API. Use 1000s of open source triggers and actions across 1000+ apps. Or write custom code to integrate any app or API in seconds.

Overview

With the Front API, you can build a variety of applications and integrations to help you and your team manage your email inboxes. Here are a few examples of what you can build:

  • A personalized email assistant that can help you triage and respond to emails
  • An integration with your CRM that automatically adds emails from customers to your CRM
  • A tool that flags important emails and sends you notifications about them
  • An app that helps you find emails from a specific sender or with a certain subject line
  • A script that archives all of your old emails

These are just a few examples of what you can build with the Front API – the possibilities are really only limited by your imagination!

Authentication

Front uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Front account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Front and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Front API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://app.frontapp.com/oauth/authorize?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}
  2. accessToken

    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&grant_type=authorization_code&code={{oauth.code}}
