How to Setup a Webhook with JotForm

What is a Webhook?

A webhook is a technique used to send HTTP POST notifications to a URL. They can be used to connect apps together or just send data. Read more!

1. Open your form in the form builder and click on the settings tab, go to the integrations section and search WebHooks or filer the result in the drop down with "Other".


2. Add your WebHook URL: 


To inspect/debug a webhook request, you can use RequestBin. Simply create a Request Bin and set the endpoint URL in your form's Webhook (as seen in the screenshot on step 2). Make an actual submission to your form and then check the collected data on Request Bin.




 Example:



Here's an example PHP script that you may want to try on Webhook. This is a simple mailer script that will send the form submissions data to your email through Webhook http://pastebin.com/raw/AmG72bve. Make sure to replace the field names and emails with the one from your form, you can also add fields if you prefer.

    what if my endpoint requires an authorization header with a bearer token. Is there a place or method to enter that data in the webhook url?

    Please make an article on how to get a complete list of the questions and Webhook IDs using the API. Using $_POST is not suitable for production.

    How do i send this post data in json format instead of multipart form??

  • abusamer

    It is not readily obvious what the field names are when parsing the rawRequest from the $_POST. It would be extremely helpful to have a procedure that builds php variables automatically.

    So where does this code above go to? To ASP default.aspx or?

    Thanks for the link to RequestBin! We have additional tools for debugging webhooks as well (including those that let you capture and forward to your live endpoints). Be sure to check them out: https://www.runscope.com

    I am attempting to set up a direct integration to webmerge.me, but the problem appears to be the lack of ability on Jotform's end to generate the proper POST command with name/value pairs.

    Am I missing an option somewhere or is the POST command simply immature at this time?

    Thanks, Mark
