Right now I’m using the workflow endpoint to collect data from a third party and then process it right away. Basically to do some transformation and adding it to a database.
However the third party triggers multiple times for the same event. We filter that.
But this causes a lot of workflow runs that are not needed. Paying 75$ for another 5k runs isn’t suitable for us. It’s inefficient and lazy.
So I’m thinking to do some optimization soon.
I’m also considering to replace a simple workflow with just an api endpoint. This way we can stay below the 5k runs for a while. This means I have to program what I have now in a workflow.
We will create more workflows, until value/price gets better and then the 5k+ is justified.
Now I’m wondering.. has retool a hosted api+endpoint to connect to their apps? Or do only workflows have an endpoint that’s accessible for webhooks?
The information I can find it’s just to generate your own api but it’s for testing right? It’s not to create an app with or to use in production as far as I know.
Does anyone have any suggestions where you can host your api and where maintenance isn’t a hassle? I don’t want to run a server and I rather have everything with retool.
I wish we could prefilter workflow runs
