How To Integrate Zapier With Messenger Bot Using Webhook – Email by Zapier
Follow this process to make your own integration with this third-party application.
The Webhooks by Zapier trigger supports sending more than a single trigger event per webhook request. You can send an array of properly formed JSON objects and will trigger the Zapier once for each object in the array. It triggers the actions 3 times – once for every object in the array.
First, Log In to your Zapier account. If you don’t have Zapier make an account to use its features to integrate Webhook to Messenger Bot.
Then, click the Make a Zap. To make your first Zapier.

Click the Choose Trigger Event dropdown menu and select your webhook type.
For most webhooks, the Catch Hook trigger will be the best one to use. Catch hooks work by giving you a unique URL that you can then make requests to. If you want Zapier to make a GET request of an external URL to check for new entries, use a Retrieve Poll webhook trigger. But, now let’s choose Catch Hook. Then, click Continue.
Next, you’ll be given the URL for your webhook and can customize your webhook.
Silent mode: some apps want to receive an empty body. If you don’t want to receive content in the response from Zapier, select the Silent mode checkbox.
Pick off child key: This is the specific key you want Zapier to use from the request you make to the webhook URL. This is useful if you only care about getting a subset of the data that is sent to the webhook.
Copy the webhook URL and paste it to Messenger Bot JSON API Connector features.
Open the app you want to connect to Zapier and find its webhooks settings page. You’ll often find that in your app’s core settings or options page, or inside the options for a specific project or list. Check your app’s help and support documentation if you can’t locate it.
