Consuming Data into my App From a Webhook

Hello,   I am using a webhook to monitor any status changes on an external website and then, I need to receive the info into my app and display the updated status on a status page. How do I consumer the info sent in via the webhook and then display? How would the microflow look like?   Thank you

Hi Joe,


Generally, you need to expose as REST API endpoint, based on your webhook service provider, this may have a specific URL format and endpoint type (generally a POST). So maybe refer to the documentation of your webhook service provider.

Some webhooks may also have certain requirements, such as a certain response time etc. Consuming the information sent, may require additional processing, that may need to be done outside of the REST endpoint that your webhook calls. This can be achieved using either Task Queues or Scheduled Events depending on your application.

Hope this helps!
