Webhook PHP Script Examples

March 22, 2022

If you’re already familiar with Jotform Webhooks, here are example scripts that you may want to try. Make sure to update the field names on these scripts with the field names from your form.

Instant Email Notification

This is an email notification script for webhook using PHP’s built-in mail function. Get instant email notification using your email sending server.

<?php
// Convert JSON data to PHP
$result = $_REQUEST['rawRequest'];
$obj = json_decode($result, true);
// Change with your emails
$emailfrom = "john@example.com"; // Sender or From Email
$emailto = "paul@example.com"; // Recipient, you can predefine or use a field value e.g. $obj['q4_email']
$subject = "You've got a new submission"; // Email Subject Title
// Do not edit
$id = $_POST['submissionID']; // Get submission ID
$submissionURL = 'https://www.jotform.com/submission/'.$id; // Construct submission URL
$headers = "From: " . $emailfrom . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Reply-To: ". $emailfrom . "\r\n"; // Optional
$headers .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8\r\n";
// New method, get data from the submissions page
$html = new DOMDocument;
$html->loadHTML(file_get_contents($submissionURL));
$body = $html->getElementsByTagName('body')->item(0);
// get html code after the body tag
foreach ($body->childNodes as $child){
$html->appendChild($html->importNode($child, true));
}
// make the table responsive so it appears nicely on email
$body = $html->getElementsByTagName('table');
foreach ($body as $width) {
$width->setAttribute('width', '100%');
}
$body = $html->saveHTML();
// Send email
@mail($emailto, $subject, $body, $headers);
?>

SMS Notification

Send SMS after form submission using your SMS provider’s API.

<?php
// Catch form field values
$result = $_REQUEST['rawRequest'];
$obj = json_decode($result, true);
// Replace your authentication key & credentials
$authKey = "your_auth_key";
$senderId = "102234";
$route = "default";
// Replace your form field names
$mobileNumber = $obj['q1_mobileNo']; // mobile no. from form data
$message = urlencode($obj['q2_message']); // message from form data
// Prepare you post parameters
$postData = array(
'authkey' => $authKey,
'mobiles' => $mobileNumber,
'message' => $message,
'sender' => $senderId,
'route' => $route
);
// Replace your API endpoint
$url = "http://mysmsapiproviders.com/sendhttp.php";
// init the resource
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt_array($ch, array(
CURLOPT_URL => $url,
CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
CURLOPT_POST => true,
CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => $postData
// ,CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION => true
));
// Ignore SSL certificate verification
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);
// get response
$output = curl_exec($ch);
// Print error if any
if (curl_errno($ch)) {
echo 'error:' . curl_error($ch);
}
curl_close($ch);
echo $output;
?>

Form to MySQL

Send form data to your MySQL database.

<?php
// Replace with your DB details
$servername = "localhost";
$username = "your_username_here";
$password = "your_password_here";
$dbname = "your_dbname_here";
$dbtable = "your_dbtable_here";
// Create connection
$mysqli = new mysqli($servername, $username, $password, $dbname);
// Check connection
if ($mysqli->connect_error) {
die("Connection failed: " . $mysqli->connect_error);
}
// Get field values from the form
// Get unique submissionID - nothing to change here
$sid = $mysqli->real_escape_string($_REQUEST["submissionID"]);
// Get form field values and decode - nothing to change here
$fieldvalues = $_REQUEST["rawRequest"];
$obj = json_decode($fieldvalues, true);
// Replace the field names from your form here
$fname = $mysqli->real_escape_string($obj["q15_yourName"][first]);
$lname = $mysqli->real_escape_string($obj["q15_yourName"][last]);
$email = $mysqli->real_escape_string($obj["q16_yourEmail16"]);
$message = $mysqli->real_escape_string($obj["q17_yourMessage"]);
$result = $mysqli->query("SELECT * FROM $dbtable WHERE sid = '$sid'");
// If submission ID exists, update the record...
if ($result->num_rows > 0) {
$result = $mysqli->query(
"UPDATE $dbtable SET firstname = '$fname', lastname = '$lname', email = '$email', message = '$message' WHERE sid = '$sid'"
);
echo "Existing Record Updated!";
}
// else, insert record
else {
$result = $mysqli->query(
"INSERT IGNORE INTO $dbtable (sid, firstname, lastname, email, message) VALUES ('$sid', '$fname', '$lname','$email','$message')"
);
echo "New Record Added!";
if ($result === false) {
echo "SQL error:" . $mysqli->error;
}
}
$mysqli->close();
?>

Bounce Notifier

Get notified when an email delivery failure or bounceback occurred. The following script will utilize your default web host SMTP to send emails. So make sure your web host supports this. Otherwise, the mail function won’t work.

This code requires PHP Client Library from the Jotform API page. Place the JotForm.php file within the same folder containing your bounce notifier PHP file.

<?php
include "JotForm.php";
$jotformAPI = new JotForm("Your Jotform API Key here"); // Put your API Key here
$history = $jotformAPI->getHistory("emails", "lastWeek");
$subid = $_REQUEST["submissionID"];
$submissionURL = "https://www.jotform.com/submission/" . $subid; // Construct submission URL
$limit = 1; // send the last failed notification - increase the number if you have multiple notifications
$results = [];
// Your emails here
$to = "john@example.com"; // Replace with your recipient email
$from = "paulsmith@example.com"; // Replace with your FROM email
// Change the subject title if you like
$subject = "Message bounced.";
// Don't edit
$headers = "MIME-Version: 1.0" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "Content-type:text/html;charset=UTF-8" . "\r\n";
$headers .= "From: <" . $from . ">" . "\r\n";
// Additional body message here (optional)
$msg1 = "Unable to deliver the message to the recipient.";
// New method, get data from the submissions page
$html = new DOMDocument();
$html->loadHTML(file_get_contents($submissionURL));
$body = $html->getElementsByTagName("body")->item(0);
// Get the HTML code after the body tag
foreach ($body->childNodes as $child) {
$html->appendChild($html->importNode($child, true));
}
// Make the table responsive so it appears nicely on email
$body = $html->getElementsByTagName("table");
foreach ($body as $width) {
$width->setAttribute("width", "100%");
}
// Don't edit anything from here unless you know what you're doing
foreach ($history as $key => $value) {
if (
$value["status"] == "IN BOUNCE/BLOCK LIST" ||
($value["status"] == "FAILED" && $value["submissionID"] == $subid)
) {
if ($key == $limit - 1) {
$body = $msg1 . "<br>";
$body .= $html->saveHTML();
@mail($to, $subject, $body, $headers);
}
}
}
?>
