Saving return values from webhook (specifically POST) to a column

@Phil,

We have talked about this once before privately I believe but could you please provide an update on whether it will be possible to save the response from a POST endpoint in a webhook workflow into a column?

Thanks,
Jayaram

Hi Jayaram,

Sorry my memory is terrible. Can you elaborate on what you are asking for?

Around March 11, I was working on an app which needed a functionality as follows:

I want to trigger a webhook workflow which does a POST as a result of the user pressing an Action button. The returned value from that website will be a String (for example, it may be the base64 encoded image of a chart) and I want to save that image in a Image column.

You had replied saying - “You can be notified of the error by setting “Enable Audit History alerts” on the Manage > Monitor pane.”

Now, I am asking in addition to logging it in the Audit History, can I save that response in a specific column in a table?

We are also waiting for this feature.

We have discussed adding the ability to retrieve data using an HTTP Get or Post but there is nothing currently “in plan”. I will bring up your request with Praveen.

It would be circuitous, but you might achieve this using Zapier by:

  1. Using an AppSheet webhook to invoke Zapier. https://help.appsheet.com/en/articles/962017-integrate-with-zapier
  2. Using Zapier to do a Post to the external web service.
  3. Using Zapier to retrieve the Post response data.
  4. Using Zapier to invoke the AppSheet REST API to do an Add or Update to an AppSheet table. This we send the data returned by the Post to your AppSheet table. https://help.appsheet.com/en/articles/1979966-api-the-essentials

@Phil,

I am looking for solution to capture the response from REST GET and POST also. Any idea when can it will be available ?

Also, any workaround at this moment ? I would like to capture and show the response in real-time manner.

@Phil,

I need this capability still and it would really be helpful to have. Thanks for considering.

I think this capability would really be a plus for appsheet because going through a third party like zapier adds to the process. Please fix it.
