Run Webhooks button

Before we begin, add the entity-only in a Solution and then load it up into Ribbon Workbench –

  1. You can see the Run Webhook button in the Ribbon Workbench menu as below.

  2. When you drag it on the ribbon on the (on the Account Form in this example), you’ll see the below parameters pop-up.
    Title should have the title of the Button to be called on the ribbon.
    Web Hook URL should have the complete URL for the Webhook – An HTTP Flow here.
    Start Confirmation Text should have the text which should be displayed on the confirmation dialog when you trigger this button for Webhook.
    Success Callback JavaScript should have the JS snippet of what should happen if the Webhook call succeeds.
    Error Callback JavaScript should have the JS snippet of what should happen if the Webhook call fails.

  3. Once you click OK, the Webhook will be triggered and the Flow will be hit (in this example)

  4. In this scenario, it’ll only pass the id of the record.
