Dereferencing a link

Hello Everyone!

I’m trying to dereference a link using N8N. I have found this website that automatically returns the dereferenced link : .
What I would like to do is use their API to send an HTTP POST request to their website to get back a JSON with the dereferenced link.
On their website, they have a very brief API explanation on how to do that, and it seems like it could be very simple to do, but I have no clue on how to start.
I’d appreciate a lot some help :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Spacewalker, looks like their curl example is simple enough and can easily be translated into our HTTP Request node.

Looking at this command:

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" \
     -d'{"url": ""}' \

They are expecting a body parameter with a key of url and a value of (or presumably any other URL) sent as a POST request to Setting these three values like below seems to work:

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

Another option would be to use the feature in the new OneSimpleAPI node which came out in version 149 :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


Yes it does work, thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
