Bizzabo

Bizzabo holistic Events Cloud empowers marketers and planners to manage, grow and maximize all events.

Overview

Bizzabo is an all-in-one event software, which enables in-person events to deliver unique attendee experiences through intelligent and intent-based personalized engagement.

Authentication

When using the Bizzabo connector, the first thing you will need to do is go to your Tray.io account page, and select the relevant workflow. Once in the workflow dashboard itself, search and drag the Bizzabo connector from the connectors panel (on the left hand side) onto your workflow.

With the new Bizzabo connector step highlighted, in the properties panel on the right, click on 'New Authentication' which is located under the 'Settings' heading.

This will result in a Tray.io authentication pop-up window. You will first need to name your authentication ans select which type of authentication you wish to set up (personal or organisational). Proceed by clicking 'Next Step'.

As you can see, the next page asks you for your 'API Key' credentials.

Your Api key can be found in your Bizzabo account dashboard. Login to your Bizzabo account and click on the 'Integrations' tab on the navigation bar.

Select the API tab from the left navigation bar in the integrations page. Here you will be able to create a new API key or find the existing API key you wish to use.

Once you have added these fields to your Tray.io authentication popup window, click on the 'Create authentication' button. Go back to your settings authentication field (within the workflow builder properties panel), and select the recently added authentication from the dropdown options now available.

Your connector authentication setup should now be complete.

Available Operations

The examples below show one or two of the available connector operations in use.

Please see the Full Operations Reference at the end of this page for details on all available operations for this connector.

Using the Raw HTTP Request ('Universal Operation')

As of version 1.0, it is now possible to effectively create your own operations.

This is a very powerful feature which you can put to use when there is an endpoint in Bizzabo which is not used by any of our operations.

To use this you will first of all need to research the endpoint in the

Bizzabo API Documentation v2.0, to _find the exact format_ that Bizzabo will be expecting the endpoint to be passed in.

Note that you will only need to add the suffix to the endpoint, as the base URL will be automatically set (the base URL is picked up from the value you entered when you created your authentication).

The base URL for Bizzabo is: https://api.bizzabo.com/api.

For example, say that the 'List events' operation did not exist in our Bizzabo connector, and you wanted to use this endpoint, you would use the Bizzabo API docs to find that the relevant endpoint - which in this case is a GET request called: /events. More details can be found

here.

You will also need to add the any query parameters specified in the Api documentation. For this endpoint, you can send an optional parameter: size, to specify the number of results you want returned.

So, if you know what your method, endpoint and query parameters are you can get the list of events you need with the following settings:

Method: GET

Endpoint: /events

Query Parameter: Key: size Value: 1

Example Usage

TRAY POTENTIAL: Tray.io is extremely flexible. By design there is no fixed way of working with it - you can pull whatever data you need from other services and work with it using our core and helper connectors. This demo which follows shows only one possible way of working with Tray.io and the Bizzabo connector. Once you've finished working through this example please see our Introduction to working with data and jsonpaths page and Data Guide for more details.

Below is an example of a way in which you could potentially use the Bizzabo connector, to get all of the contacts in your account one by one.

The steps will be as follows:

  1. Setup your trigger and list all events in your Bizzabo account.
  2. Add the Loop collection connector to iterate over each individual event.
  3. Get individual event details for each listed item.

The final outcome should look like this:

1 - Setup Trigger

Once you have clicked 'Create new workflow' from your main Tray.io dashboard (and named said new workflow), select the Manual trigger from the trigger options available:

After you have been redirected to the Tray.io workflow dashboard, from the connectors panel on the left, add an Bizzabo connector to your second step. Set the operation to 'List events'.

Please note that you can set up filters for more specific search criteria, but for the sale of simplicity this has been left out of this example.

Feel free to re-name your steps after their operations as you go along, in order to make things clearer for both yourself and other users.

When run, this workflow will list all events in your Bizzabo account.

2 - Loop List

Next, search for the 'Loop collection' connector within your connector panel, and drag it into your workflow as your next step. Set your operations to 'Loop list'.

The Loop Collection connector allows you to iterate through a list of results. In this example, we will use it to iterate through the data found within the previous Bizzabo connector step.

In order to specify the list you want to loop through, start by using the 'List' mapping icon (found next to the list input field, within the properties panel) to generate the connector-snake.

While hovering over the 'List events' step (with the tail end of the connector-snake), select content from the list of output properties displayed. This will auto-populate a jsonpath within your 'List' input field, and update the type selector to jsonpath.

For more clarification on the pathways you have available, open the Debug panel to view your step's Input and Output.

JSONPATHS: For more information on what jsonpaths are and how to use jsonpaths with Tray.io, please see our Intro page and Data Guide for more details.
CONNECTOR-SNAKE: The simplest and easiest way to generate your jsonpaths is to use our feature called the Connector-snake. Please see the main page for more details.

Now your loop list step will iterate through each list item found from your Bizzabo 'List events' step.

3 - Get Event

Finally, drag another Bizzabo connector step into the Loop collection step itself, and select the operation 'Get event'.

Use the same connector-snake method for generating the jsonpath, this time to get the 'Event ID' details. You also have the option to select from the drop down options available due to the authentication setup from earlier.

Now when you run your workflow, you will have a list generated and iterated through, with all the relevant information your might need per event!.
