Here are two methods to setup a webhook.

1. Setting Up a New Webhook

  • You can configure up to 5 webhooks, each capable of notifying your application about multiple selected events.

  • Note that this method does not offer a customized payload option; only HTTP POST requests are supported.

Step 1: Go to the Whautomate app, select the Integration menu option, and Select the Webhooks Connect button to continue.

Step 2: Select the New Webhook button to continue

Step 3: Configure Webhook Settings

(i) Enter the Webhook name Eg. Contact Created

(ii) Enter the Server URL where the webhook notifications will be sent.

(iii) Choose the events you want to receive notifications for. You can select multiple events for a single webhook. Eg. Contact Created

Step 4: Save your webhook configuration.

Test the webhook to ensure it is working correctly.

2. Setting Up a Customized Webhook with Payload Customization

This method allows you to send custom webhook payloads via RESTful endpoints, offering flexibility in data transfer and integration with external applications.

Step 1: Go to the Whautomate app, Select the Automation menu option, Click the Add Rule button, and then select the Create Rule From Scratch option to continue.

Step 2: Select the Trigger When a Client is created option.

Step 3: To add conditions, simply click on the "Add Condition" button.

Please set up the condition based on your specific use case. Note that I skipped the condition section in this case.

Step 4: Select a send Action type as the Webhooks by Whautomate option 👇

Add the Details of Webhook Configuration

(i) Select the Request Method option as POST

(ii) URL: Enter the URL where the webhook notifications will be sent.

(iii) Payload: The "Payload" refers to the data associated with the automation trigger. It includes the content or information transferred from Whautomate to the external system or service via the webhook. You can customise this payload according to your need.

Please enter (#) to choose from variables in the payload to be populated dynamically when customising the payload.

(iv) Headers: I used the Whautomate default header. If you want to use a new header, select the Add Header button and create. 👇

Step 5: To test the Webhook, please select the "Send Test Webhook" button.

Step 6: After filling in all the details Click the Save button. 👇

How to Test Webhooks Requests

Step 1: Go to the https://requestbin.com/ website, sign up for your account and then select the Create Request Bin button to continue which will give you enough credits for testing the webhooks.

Step 2: Copy the webhook request URL and Paste it into the Whautomate platform 👇

The Request URL is where Whautomate sends data and events. It's an external system that receives HTTP requests. Specify the URL of the receiving system for seamless data transmission and optimal performance.

Step 3: Go to the Whautomate app and paste the Request URL to the Create New Client Webhook Automation Action section URL field.

Note: Implement the automation trigger and conditions outlined in the upper section, which corresponds to those utilized in the Get Started

Step 6: Go back to the Pipedream app and select the test event to check the test payload data.
