This help file explains to you the basics to connect WP Webhooks with Automate.io.
If you want to learn more about how to receive data from Automate.io, feel free to check out this manual.
Send Data within a Flows automation
If you are using the Flows feature of WP Webhooks, you can simply select the “Automate.io” integration from the integration dropdown of any action you add. This allows you to add your Automate.io webhook URL, which will then receive the data in return.
Send Data directly on a WordPress event
You can also create a direct connection between WordPress and Automate.io by using our Trigger (Send Data) feature. This allows you to create direct connections to Automate.io without the need of using a whole Flow.
It supports all of our available integrations.
How to set up the Automate.io Webhooks extension
- To get started, please create a new Workflow within Automate.io.
- Once created, open up the Bot of your choice and add your trigger. This step is responsible for triggering this Workflow.
- As the first step, please search for “Webhooks” and select the “Webhooks” app from Automate.io, along with the “Incoming Hook” trigger.
- Now click the “Setup webhook” button on the left
After you added the app, Automate.io will show you a dynamically generated Webhook URL. Please place this URL into the WP Webhooks trigger of your choice.
To add it, please head over to your WordPress dashboard -> Settings -> WP Webhooks -> Send Data, and add your webhook URL there.
Once this URL was added within your chosen trigger of WP Webhooks, you successfully created a connection between our plugin and Automate.io
At this point, every time your selected trigger is fired, Automate.io will receive the data of that trigger and can use it to fire further steps.
You can also customize and filter the behavior of the trigger directly within WP Webhooks. To do that, simply open the settings next to the webhook URL inside of WP Webhooks and adjust the settings to your liking.
That’s it! You successfully set up your connection.
