How to Setup a Webhook with JotForm

Last Update: May 7, 2017

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 easily find out/debug a webhook request e.g. form field names & its sample data, you can use RequestBin(Runscope  is a good alternative too). Simply create a requestbin URL and set it as your form Webhook (as seen on the screenshot above). Make a sample submission to your form and requestbin will automatically collect the data and print it in a human-friendly way. 

 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.

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

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

Is is possible to set a secret key to authenticate against an API?
