Webhook Trigger

The Webhook trigger in Flow allows you to initiate workflows by sending an HTTP request to a specified endpoint. This trigger is particularly useful for integrating external systems, services, or third-party applications with Flow. With the Webhook trigger, you can automate tasks and enable seamless data exchange between different platforms. 

How Does the Webhook Trigger Work?

When you choose the Webhook trigger in Flow, FLow will define an endpoint URL where the HTTP request should be sent. This URL acts as the entry point for triggering your workflow. Once a request is received at the specified endpoint, Flow will execute the steps defined in your workflow, enabling you to automate processes based on external events or actions. 

Setting Up the Webhook Trigger

To set up the Webhook trigger in Flow, follow these steps:

In the Flow editor, click on the "Add Trigger" button and choose the "Webhook" option from the available trigger types.

Test the Webhook Trigger:

Once you've configured the trigger, you can test it by sending a sample HTTP request to the provided endpoint URL. This will help ensure that the trigger is correctly set up and the workflow is ready to be activated. 

Define Steps:

After setting up the Webhook trigger, you can proceed to define the actions you want to be executed when the trigger is activated. These actions can include data transformations, app integrations, notifications, or any other desired tasks. 

Save and Activate:

Once you've configured the actions, save your workflow and activate it to start automating your tasks based on the Webhook trigger.
