Get PDF from PDFmonkey: Basics :/

i am making my first steps with Retool. and i managed to address successfully.
But now I would rather use PDFmonkey. But I don't know how to build the appropriate request there.
I don't know how to configure the JSON object for the template in Retool.
According to PDFmonkey it should look like this in the end:

Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY
Content-Type: application/json
"document": {
"document_template_id": "12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890abcdef",
"payload": {
"name": "Jane Doe"
"meta": {
"clientId": "ABC1234-DE",
"_filename": "my-document.pdf"

I will be happy to receive any help.


Hey @michael_atw!

A good place to start might be the docs on connecting to an API if you haven't seen those already. They outline how you can set up an Authorization header.

After that, check out the docs on using a JSON body in API requests for configuring the JSON object itself!

Let me know if there's anything in there that raises questions or if you run into any particular issues :slightly_smiling_face:
