How to set up and use trigger

Trigger a workflow with a webhook. Follow these steps:

  1. Add a Webhook Trigger: Create a workflow with a Webhook Trigger, use an existing workflow with a Webhook Trigger, or change an existing workflow's trigger type to a Webhook Trigger.

  2. Toggle on "Return results from webhook" (optional): If you want the webhook to return the results of the workflow run, enable the "Return results from webhook" option.

    *This is useful when you need to send the workflow output back to the system that triggered the webhook.

  3. Copy the Webhook URL: Click on the clipboard icon to copy the unique URL generated for your Webhook Trigger. You will need to provide this URL to the system or application that will send the webhook event to trigger your workflow.

  4. Send a POST request to the Webhook URL: Configure the system or application to send a POST request to the copied URL. The request body should be in JSON format.

  5. Map the webhook event properties: Once the webhook event is received, you will see the event properties in the "Webhook Event" section. Map these properties to the appropriate workflow inputs by clicking on the "+" button next to each input field and selecting the corresponding event property.

  6. Activate the trigger: In the Webhook Trigger block, click the toggle switch to turn it on.
