Inbound webhooks are a standard way of connecting external applications to RESULTS.com in order to send data without having to deal with the complexity of full API access. As Webhooks operate over TLS/SSL, they are just as secure as the regular API. Initially, Webhooks have been created for Goals, but these can be extended to include Connect, Meetings and Tasks in the near future. To enable Webhooks for your organization, please contact email@example.com.
Creating a new Webhook
For Results Admins the new Webhooks section will be located under the 'More' section of the Navigation menu.
- Click '+ New Webhook' to load the New Webhook overlay.
- Complete the New Webhook form by entering the following information:
- Goal - Select the Goal that you want to update via the Webhook
- Name - Name of your Webhook, it will default to the Goal name
- Description - Add a description for your Webhook so that it can be identified in the future.Define the source system.
- Click the 'Create' button to create the Target URL which will be used to update the Goal. The created Webhook will appear like this (see below). Copy the URL and use it in your Source System to update the Goal.
Goal Data which can be updated via the Webhook
|badThreshold||Decimal value at which this threshold turns red|
|date||Y||Date this recorded data is for|
|goodThreshold||Decimal value at which this threshold turns green|
|value||Y||Decimal value to record, eg: 0.01 or 500000 or -10|
Note that the threshold values must conform to whether or not the goal is maximize or minimize. For a maximize goal (greater is better), goodThreshold >= badThreshold. For a minimize goal (lesser is better), goodThreshold <= badThreshold. If the data isn't valid, the API will respond with a 400 BAD REQUEST
