Automatically add a record to a form of one application when a record is added in a different application.

  2. dataMap = Map();
  3. dataMap.put("Name", {"first_name":input.Customer_Name.first_name,"last_name":input.Customer_Name.last_name});
  4. dataMap.put("Personal_Email_ID", input.Email);
  5. dataMap.put("Phone_Number", input.Phone_Number );
  7. // Create an empty KEY-VALUE variable to skip the other_params parameter
  8. otherParams = Map();
  10. //Write create records integration task to add the input data into the specified form
  11. // Replace <admin_user_name> with appropriate value
  12. zoho.creator.createRecord("<admin_user_name>","contact_management ","New_Contact", dataMap, otherParams, "creator_oauth_connection");
