Planning Zapier Integrations: Webhook Triggers

Learn more on Webhook triggers used in Zapier


To be covered: 


Webhooks can simply be understood as HTTP requests. The most common HTTP requests are 'GET', 'POST', 'DELETE', 'PATCH', 'PUT'. 

Webhooks simply POST data (or JSON) to a specific URL every time they see something new. Webhooks can also accept data (or JSON) to kick off a workflow in Zapier.
The easiest way to think of webhooks is as notifications. At their simplest, they carry data which is usually a single record that has been created or modified, although some apps will send along multiple records at once. This can be set as the trigger event in your Zapier integration.
When you create a new Zap with a webhook-enabled trigger, zapier will generate a brand-new URL for your use, e.g.,

Once you have the URL, you'll be able to provide it to the triggering app. After you do that, the zapier integration should start receiving payloads whenever the app sends them.

2. Under make a zap, connect app - type in webhook
