Configure and assign webhook [example]

Follow our setup guide to configuring and assigning a webhook to a process in PROCESIO. πŸŽ‰

Read on for a hands-on example on webhook configuration in PROCESIO and how to assign it to a process. For the purpose of this example, we will be using Postman to mimic an event and send data from another platform to PROCESIO.

Configure webhook

To configure your webhook, go to Automation section, then switch to Webhooks tab.

If you have not added a webhook already, clickΒ Create webhook.

We will use Postman to mimic an event and send data from another platform to PROCESIO.

1. Give the webhook a name.

2. Copy the unique URL
