0:00 That Flask API endpoint we created. That was our end of the story. But over in Twilio studio, we need to connect our flow over there back to
0:09 that API endpoint. In order to do that, we did a couple of interesting things. We added the make http request widget to our flow.
0:17 And we told it we're going to do a post request over to our URL of type application/json. And then down here at the bottom,
0:25 we put all the information we want. We've gathered up and we want to convey across to that end points with our customer
0:32 with the number, and name and email, the cake with the topping and so on and even the price that we got from
0:38 that PricingAPI. The other thing of note here is that we're using in ngrok. Remember, we did this all the way back to our Dev machine
0:47 and we were able to set a breakpoint in PyCharm or whatever editor you're using
0:52 set a breakpoint there and look at the code and inspected at this running as part of studio calling over to our api endpoint.
1:00 That was super cool. How did that happen ngrock. In my example, I had to paid account and I was able to use cloudcity.ngrok.io.
1:08 But in practice, you probably have some random GUI looking thing there, so make sure that's always up to date as you're working with your api and maybe
1:17 restarting in ngrock, and it changes.
