About the Webhooks channel

The built-in Webhooks channel allows you to make API calls to third party systems from a pipeline. When you create or import a new pipeline, a new unique webhook url is created.

Note: This channel is intended for developers and technically savvy pipeline builders.

Steps

The steps you can use with Webhooks fall into two categories: Requests and JSON Requests

Type Name Description
Requests
Trigger Incoming Request Triggers when you make a HTTP request to provided url.
Action Make Request Makes a HTTP request.
JSON Requests
Trigger Request for JSONP Triggers when a request is made to provided url for JSON.
Action JSONP Response Takes action only on JSON responses.

  2. Copy the new URL and open your mailparser account inbox.

  3. In mailparser, click on the integration section:

  4. Edit your defined Generic Webhook to reflect the new url and save the changes:
