Summary

Zapier

Zapier is an amazing service that lets you link different web services together. Using Missive's webhooks in combination with Zapier, you can trigger actions in thousands of applications whenever something occurs in Missive.

Step 1

Login/signup to Zapier then click the Make a zap! button.

Note A zap lets you define a trigger and one or multiple actions. In our case, the trigger will be the Missive webhook and the actions can be whatever you want: send a message to a Slack channel, add an entry in a CRM, add a row in a spreadsheet, etc.

Step 2

Search for the Webhook trigger app, then select Webhook by Zapier.

Step 3

Search for “Catch” and choose either the Catch Hook or Catch Raw Hook trigger.

The Catch Hook option will take the data from the webhook and flatten it in a special format so you don't have to process it yourself using a programming language like JavaScript.

For maximum flexibility, you should use the Catch Raw Hook where you will receive the raw JSON string from the webhook.

Step 4

Copy the custom webhook URL.

Step 5

Go back to Missive, create your webhook rule and paste the Zapier custom webhook URL from step 4 in the URL field.

Step 6

Go back to Zapier, click on Get More Samples. Make sure to trigger the rule you have just created on Missive so Zapier receives a webhook with real data.

Step 7

Pick the hook with real data created by the last step.

Step 8

Et voilà! You can now push the webhook data to hundreds of different apps!
