We are proud to announce the availability of webhooks with PipeThru!
This unlocks a number of powerful features. If you want to use some API feature that we already implement, say like send a Tweet, or add a contact in SugarCRM, you can do this without having to integrate into these services yourself. We'll handle all the authentication with each website, you only need to tie into our webhook system.
You can both call our webhook if you want to trigger something on our end. Alternatively, we can call your webhook URL when something happens on web app you specify.
You can call our webhook URL when an important event occurs on your end. We allow you to send us data which you may then use in a pipe. For example, let's say that a new member joins your group and provides a Twitter handle. You could potentially call our webhook URL to add that Twitter handle to a list in Twitter so you can track your member's tweets.
We can also call you! Since we regularly poll the services that you specify, you need very little running on your own website. We'll notify your webhook URL when any event you specify occurs. Want to know when a file in Dropbox is updated? Want to receive all the details of every contact added in Infusionsoft? Awesome, we'll send them to your webhook URL as a JSON encoded dictionary of information.
We tried to make the integration dead-simple so that you can get up and running quickly. You can find more documentation at www.pipethru.com/site/info/webhooks
