Connector working as expected but not when called from an extension

Connector working as expected but not when called from an extension

I am playing around with building a Zoho CRM extension and seeing if anyone has some insight on the below issue I am facing.

When I execute the Connector API it works as expected returning me the download URL for a merged document that has merged successfully.

However when I call it from within the extension from a deluge function, I am getting a different response saying that a parameter is missing when calling the API. The latest connector version is published and the associated connector has been updated to the same version available to the extension.

Are some Zoho API's not able to be called from a Zoho Connector?

Code Snippet:
  1. mergeDocumentParametersMap = Map();
  2. mergeDocumentParametersMap.put("templateId",mergeTemplateId);
  3. mergeDocumentParametersMap.put("output_format","pdf");
  4. mergeDocumentParametersMap.put("merge_data",{"data":mergeData});
  5. info mergeDocumentParametersMap;
  6. mergeDocumentResponse = zoho.crm.invokeConnector("testextension.testextensionconnector.mergedocument",mergeDocumentParametersMap);
  7. info mergeDocumentResponse;

      • Contact Info Extractor Chrome plugin

        Just trying out the Contact Info Extractor plugin and had a quick observation.  Since a target website for this plugin would be LinkedIn, I'm very surprised that the plugin cannot determine that if the selected text in question includes... Joe Smith Vice President at ABC Corporation ... the plugin can recognize the name and title but not the company.  I'd assume that the term "at" would give it the needed clue but on several contacts I tried to add, it's just not catching it. Would love to see the
