Once your accounts are connected you can navigate to the API Dashboard and copy your API key.

Remember that when you past in your API key in your Bubble app, to include the word "Bearer" in front of your API key.

For example:

Bearer bf55cc6f-76ac-46ce-b497-439d766f6c12

Add the Ayrshare plugin via the Bubble plugin marketplace to your Bubble app. In the plugin field "API Key" enter your API Key.

Post to Multiple Social Media Accounts

Here is a article with an overview:

Validate Bubble Post Data

When posting to Bubble via the API Connector, it can be difficult to determine if you are sending valid JSON. Often if the JSON posted to Ayrshare is invalid the response will be HTML.

Ayrshare has a /validateJSON url that allow you to post to instead of the typical /post endpoint. It will return "Valid" or "Not Valid". Be sure to set the Content-Type as text/plain instead of the typical application/json.

Click the Troubleshooting link below and then "Response Returns as Bad Request" to see the details.

Upload Media Files in Bubble

Use Bubble's File Uploader to upload your media files. These files are stores on Amazon's S3. You will receive back a URL that can be used in the mediaUrls body parameter of the /post endpoint.
