Connect Service

Connect service columns allow you to link to an API endpoint, that can be presented as a list of options on Rowy.


Rowy calls the provided endpoint with a POST request, passing the row data in the request body, and an optional query search parameter q, when the users types any text in the search box on rowy

example endpoint

import express from "express";
import cors from "cors";

const app = express();
// json is the default content-type for POST requests

const users = [
name: "John Smith",
email: "",
name: "Matthew Jones",
email: "",
name: "Jane Doe",
email: "",

// simple use case of connect service"/", (req, res) => {
let filteredUsers = users;
const searchQuery: any = req.query.q;
if (req.query.q) {
filteredUsers = users.filter(
(u) => ||
results: filteredUsers,
const port = process.env.PORT || 8080;
app.listen(port, () => {
console.log(`connect-service: listening on port ${port}!`);
