Webhook Action: How it works?

Hello, it seems Webhook Action is live now.
Can someone share how it works?

And how does this “Add Value” works here?
@Darren_Murphy @ThinhDinh @Jeff_Hager @Robert_Petitto
Thanks

I will defnitely have to give this a try tomorrow. I assume if we have a webhook then we won’t have to do triggers on new row like what I usually do in Zapier, thus reducing the amount of time the Zap/Integromat scenario needs.

I have also yet to play with this but have been asking for webhook support for some time now. For me it should allow a Glide app to “poke” Integromat and trigger a scenario to start running, optionally including some parameters as part of the “poke”. As an example, I often use Integromat to look for new rows in a sheet and then take action based on the content of the row e.g. use ClickSend to send a text message to one or more users when a new issue is reported. Without webhooks, Integromat has to poll the sheet from time to time and check for the new rows. This (a) introduces a delay and (b) can cost more in terms of Integromat activity. Using a webhook action can tell Integromat to “look now” thus reducing both of these issues. Hope that makes sense.

Live or in Staging?

I still receive an error message when I try to set it up!! There is no way to test it

Anyone else has the same problem?

Thanks

Yip I can’t create a webhook in compound actions. No way to configure it, the screen just jumps to a blank screen. @Mark & @david thanks for the webhooks, any idea how we can actually configure & save them? Cheers

@Mark & @david looks like you need to configure them in the single action screen then apply them in the compound action screen. You do get the option to configure it in the compound action screen but it simply jumps to a blank view once you click in the configure name or webhook url sections. Cheers :crazy_face:

Nope, you can enter the details but cannot save the hook. :disappointed:

A simple url will save but something like this doesn’t allow you to save:
esouc9nu5peddf9u0fkeyfof3qe5ix3v@hook.integromat.com

@Mark & @david apologies guys I was trying to save a mailhook url - the integromat webhooks do save! All good thank you for this feature. :+1:

Quickly, here’s how to get integromat up and running.

  • Create a new integromat scenario and search for “webhook”

  • Select custom

image

  • Add a hook

  • Copy the address

  • Paste it into a new webhook action in Glide.

  • Configure it to pass some data

  • Go back to integromat, run the scenario so it starts to wait for data

  • Trigger the action in glide

  • See the :dizzy:

Nice @Mauronic! I just finished my video tutorial. I’ll upload it momentarily into a new post.

Thanks @Mauronic I was sending data via an email triggered from a script in the sheet, sending the email to an Integromat mailhook to trigger a scenario. Now the webhook is simply passing the parameters. This is fantastic :grinning:

Hi @Robert_Petitto thanks for doing a tutorial. Did you show us how to remove a webhook? I can’t see that anywhere. Might be because it is so early here in Australia!

There isn’t a way to remove them yet once you create them.

Thanks @Robert_Petitto, honestly Glide’s pace of feature roll outs is ridiculously impressive. Thanks for all the tutorials it’s greatly appreciated. Cheers

Just a heads up that Glide doesn’t currently send the password in the Authorization header. That’ll be fixed on Friday the 15th.

I was wondering where the password went! Thanks

Is the password working now???

Yes it is. Gets set in the header.
