    How to get webhook code?

    Asked by MarkPutt on February 26, 2014 at 11:55 AM

    If I host jotform source on my own site, where does the Webhook code live?  OR... would I even need the Webhook code and then maybe host the php scrpit on my own.  If this is the case how do I capture the submit event so I can fire my php post?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    You can add your HTTP post link to Jotform's webhook so that the data can be pushed to your PHP form. You can share your HTTP post URL and which form the data will be pushed so we can provide you the proper webhook script.

    You can review more of Webhook on this guides:

    I guess I don't understand the answers.  Also, there is a lot of info to wade through.


    1. If I have a webhook on my form, can I host the code on my site as is, or do I have to change the code to make the webhook work?

    A webhook code is self hosted somewhere else, not in the form, so yes, you can do your server side programming (php) and then get the URL and redirect submissions to it
