Make Integromat Webhook Tutorial
Integromat webhooks are a great way to connect any service and start automating instantly when something happens on another platform. In this tutorial, I will show you exactly how you can use webhooks, how to set them up on different systems, and what they can do for you.
Hey, my name is Manuel and I’m the founder of TechFlow AI. In this tutorial, I will show you how you can work with Integromat webhooks and the different types of webhooks available, as well as what you can do with them.
Let’s start by creating a simple webhook. Inside Integromat, you can create a new scenario and click on the plus symbol to search for webhooks. There are many different systems that offer webhooks as a trigger, meaning they can start your automations instantly when something happens on that platform. Scroll down and select webhooks.
There are two different types of triggers: custom mail hook and custom webhook. The custom mail hook provides you with an email address where you can forward emails and use advanced filters in your email system. In this tutorial, we will focus on custom webhooks.
A webhook is basically a URL that you can send data to. It catches the data, processes it the way you want, and can even send data back. A simple explanation of a webhook is that it is a URL you can trigger and append data to. This webhook catches the data, processes it, and can send the data back to you. Now that we know what a webhook is, let’s dive into some examples to help us understand its applications.
One example is Shopify. Shopify has different events like articles, blogs, comments, orders, and more. If an article is created, you can send a notification to Integromat and start your automation. You can do this for various events such as published, unpublished, and updated.
Another example is Calendly. If you use a booking service, you can send yourself a notification when a new booking happens. You can add it as a task in your project management tool, send a notification to Slack, or prepare necessary documents for the call. Webhooks allow you to automate tasks instantly.
Manychat is also an example where you can use webhooks. You can send data to a webhook URL, such as full contact data or custom fields, and automate processes based on that data. Manychat provides external requests and dynamic content, which have slight differences in functionality.
Now let’s learn how to set up a webhook. To create a custom webhook, give it any name you want, such as “YouTube webhook”. You can also customize settings like data structure, request headers, request method, and JSON pass through. In most cases, you don’t need to worry about these settings. Once you click save, you will get a URL which you can copy to your clipboard.
Next, add this URL to the location where you want to send the notification from. This could be in Shopify, under notifications, or in your scheduling system. Test the request in Manychat to make sure it’s working correctly. If you see that it successfully determined the request, it means the webhook is ready to receive data.
Now you can use the data from the webhook in further modules and perform actions based on that data. For example, you can use the subscriber ID from the webhook data and map it to a module to perform specific tasks. The webhook will run instantly when a notification is received, saving you unnecessary operations.
Once you have set up the webhook, you can also set up a webhook response. This is useful when you want to send data back as a response to the webhook. By default, the webhook will send back a 200 status code and accept the request. However, you can customize the response code and body to fit your needs.
Keep in mind that most services have expiration times for webhooks, so they won’t wait indefinitely for a response. If you want to return data, consider using a different method instead of the webhook response.
Webhooks are powerful and can be used in various scenarios to automate tasks instantly. They eliminate the need for scheduling and can be triggered as soon as an event occurs. I highly recommend using webhooks whenever possible for efficient automation.
