All users for Retool organizations on Free or Team plans have global Edit permissions and can add, edit, and remove resources. If your organization manages user permissions for resources, you must be a member of a group with Edit all permissions.
To create your Brex resource, you need:
Brex uses Bearer (token) authentication. You must provide an API key or access token for Retool to authorize requests. Refer to the Brex documentation on authenticating requests to learn how to obtain an API key or access token.
If Brex is behind a firewall, you must also allow access from Retool's IP addresses. Add these IP addresses to your firewall's allowlist before you create the resource.
1. Create a new resource
Sign in to your Retool organization and navigate to the Resources tab. Click Create new, then select Resource.
Retool can connect to almost any API or database, and has built-in integrations for popular data sources. Select the REST API integration.
2. Configure the resource
Provide the necessary details to configure the resource so Retool can connect to Brex. Not all settings are required but refer to the Brex documentation to learn what is needed.
These settings configure the name and location of the resource within Retool.
The name to use for the resource (e.g., Brex).
The folder in which to save the resource.
A brief description of the resource (e.g., User data).
These settings configure how Retool connects to Brex.
The base URL for the Brex API. This must be an absolute URL. Use
Key-value pairs to include as URL parameters with Brex API requests. No additional URL parameters are required.
Key-value pairs to include as headers with Brex API requests. Include the following key-value pairs:
Key-value pairs to include in the body of Brex API requests. No additional body values are required.
Cookies to include with Brex API requests. No cookies are required.
The method of authentication to use with Brex. Select
Forward all cookies
Whether to forward all cookies. This is useful if you have dynamic cookie names.
3. Save the resource
Click Create resource to complete the setup. You can then click either Create an app to immediately start building a Retool app or Back to resources to return to the list of resources.
Your Brex resource is now ready to use. You write queries to make API requests by specifying the request method and endpoint, additional parameters to include, and the request body.
To verify you can successfully interact with Brex, write a test query to retrieve some data. The following example retrieves a list of users.
