The Webhook automation block is an add-on feature.
Webhooks are used to connect two different applications. When an event occurs in the first application, the first application serializes data about the event and sends it to a webhook URL that is exposed in the second application. Cartegraph is able to do outgoing webhooks, or the first application mentioned in the webhooks definition.
In Cartegraph, webhooks are built using an automation block. Like any other automation, you can configure the trigger conditions for the automation.
To configure the webhook:
- Paste in the URL you want called in the other application.
- Select the Record Source to indicate which Cartegraph record you want to send.
In the rare case that the other application requires authentication to call the webhook, you can turn on the Use Basic Authentication toggle and enter the user name and password. These values are encrypted and stored in Cartegraph.
Cartegraph works with apps like Zapier and IfThisThenThat for building webhooks. For sending tweets, a Twilio account is required.
