Creating a Fillout Connection/Hook using API


I’m trying to create a fillout connection and hook using the API and would appreciate some guidance. I’ve followed the API guide here: and saw the slack example request body:

“accountName”:“Slack Test”,

How would this be for Fillout? I notice when using the API I can create a connection with just a name and type:

“accountName”:“Fillout Test”,

This actually goes through (to my surprise, I thought I would receive an error to indicate what missing fields I needed) and returns the connection details, but it doesn’t show in my UI and when I try to create a Hook and pass in the connection ID for “IMTCONN”, it throws this error: “The request failed due to failure of a previous request.”, unsurprisingly because I gave the connection no authentication whatsoever, just a name.
