Get to Know Response Types: Action

Webhooks enable you to do some really exciting stuff. You can fetch input from Bot Memory, plug input into API calls, and convert the returned data into chat messages. The messages can themselves be formatted in HTML. What makes the update truly exciting is the fact that you can make calls to your own APIs and to any third-party APIs.

NOTE.

  • There is no way to check if a webhook works during a node's creation. The checking happens when a request is made through webhook.

Configuration

  1. Click Add Response Type and select Webhook from Actions.

  2. Enter the endpoint URL in top field.

  3. Click Add Headers to insert headers to go with the Endpoint URL.

  4. In Header Name and Header Value, add the authentication parameters used to access gated APIs.

  5. Write the code to call the API in Request Payload. You can use entities in the payload in the format ${{entity_name}}.

  6. Turn on Use Dynamic Response if a different input is expected in each response.

  7. Configure the output on the chat window in Expected Response.

  8. To display a message when webhook fails, enter a descriptive message in Fail Response.

  9. Scroll up and click Save.
