Get GIFs

Giphy is an online database and search engine for creating, searching, and sharing animated GIFs. This action lets you retrieve the details of the specified GIFs. To do this, add this action to your canvas and configure it. Select the appropriate connection for Giphy from the drop-down list. If you haven’t created a connection yet, select ‘Add New’ to create one. 

Field data

GIF Names (Mandatory): Select/specify the name/ID of the GIF of which you wish to retrieve the details. Clicking the ‘Refresh’ icon will fetch the list of all the GIFs of your GIPHY account—based on the connection selected—and display it in the drop-down list. 

In case there are too many GIFs, you can search the required one by its ‘name’ or ‘ID’. Alternatively, you can manually enter the name or ID of the GIF of which you wish to retrieve the details or use the output of the previous action as an input for this field.


Once you have entered the details, click on 'Done' and 'Run' the workflow. This will retrieve the details of the specified GIFs from your Giphy account.
