Zapier is a tool that helps you automate repetitive tasks between two or more apps without code. UpGuard’s Zapier integration allows you to integrate UpGuard with over 4,000 apps that are available in the Zapier App Store.

What should/can I automate with Zapier?

How does Zapier work?

The basic idea behind Zapier is that when an event happens in one app, Zapier can tell another app to perform (or do) a particular action. In short, “When this happens, do that”. Even the most complex automation can be broken down into this simple command.

For example:

When

A data leak is detected by UpGuard

Then

Call our security team via Twilio

(You can create this exact automation by using this template)

How to create your first UpGuard Zapier integration

The easiest way to get started with Zapier is to use one of the workflow templates that we’ve outlined on our Zapier App Store page. Please note that we use API-based authentication for our Zapier automation, so you’ll need to be an admin of your UpGuard account to set up the automation. You’ll also need to enable the Data Leak permission on the API key if you want to use the Data Leak-based triggers/searches.

Simply scroll down until you see the heading Popular ways to use UpGuard workflows and then click Try it next to the corresponding workflow.

From here, you’ll be guided through how to create your first Zap by Zapier. If you’re having trouble, we recommend reviewing Zapier’s knowledge base here or contacting support@upguard.com for further assistance.
