Arguments are specific pieces of information you can set within an action. They allow you to send over custom information based on your needs. For Flows automation, all of those will be available directly within the action step. If you are using "Webhooks" in combination with automation services such as Zapier, Pabbly Connect, or Make.com, the argument is the key/value pair within the body of the request. Within JSON strings, the key is the argument, and the value is the argument value (To learn more about the webhooks action parameters, please click here). All of the arguments are available within both the Webhooks and Flows Automations.
