Webhooks

Contents

Overview

This article introduces Kintone’s Webhook feature. Each App in Kintone has a feature to set up outgoing Webhooks. With Webhooks set up, record data can be sent in JSON format to an endpoint of the user’s choice.

Webhook Events

Webhooks can be sent at the following trigger events:

Webhook Events Details
Record is added A new record is added
Record is edited A record is saved after editing
Record is deleted A record is deleted
Comment is posted A user posts a comment to a record
Status is changed A process management status is updated

Webhook Usages

Webhooks allow data from Kintone to be sent to an endpoint without the use of coding. To set up a Webhook, only the endpoint and the trigger event need to be selected. By sending the Webhook to a service like Zapier (External link), the data can then be used to perform other actions on external services, such as syncing data.

How to Set Up a Webhook

Webhooks can be set up by navigating to the App’s settings and clicking on the Webhooks option. Click on the [+] icon to start setting up a Webhook.

Data Sent by the Webhook

Data sent with Webhooks are sent in JSON format. For details on the contents of the data, refer to the Content of Webhook Notification Triggered by Actions in Kintone (External link) article on the Kintone Help site.
