Webhook catcher lets you receive a webhook from any application so that you can use its fields in your automations. It comes in handy when you want to integrate with an app that isn’t listed in the Albato app library, but it allows you to manually specify an endpoint URL to send webhooks to.
Let’s create a «webhooks» connection as an example and «catch» all the parameters that Webflow can pass to us after the filled out form.
To do this, open the App tab in the top menu bar. Click the Add a connection button.
Select the app from the list or use the search bar. Pick the Webhook service.
Click «Add connection» and name the connection, click on «Continue»
Copy the generated webhook and click on "Save"
We register it in Webflow, go to edit the created site, in the settings of the form you need paste the webhook copied from the connection. Save the settings and publish the changes
Now you can launch webhook catcher in Albato
Next, click the Wait for webhook button.
While Albato is waiting for a request, you see this window
Now you can send a test request from Webflow to our webhook, publish the website and fill in the data in your form by initiating the transfer of data to the webhook.
After the webhook is «caught», you will see the following message
We created a custom integration with an app that is not currently included in Albato's library. This was made possible through the use of webhooks and the webhook catcher.
