How do I get the name of an Extractor using the Import.io API?

Last Updated: Mar 31, 2017 03:13PM PDT
A GUID included in the URL of an Extractor, when viewed in the dashboard, uniquely identifies the extractor, additional there is a readable name associated with the Extractor. The name of the extractor can determined by the name field from the JSON document returned from the following API call, shown here using the curl command with the output formatted by jq:
 
curl -X GET -s "https://store.import.io/store/extractor/$EXTRACTOR_ID?_apikey=$IMPORT_IO_API_KEY" | jq .
