Hey Everyone, 

BACKGROUN INFORMATION

I’m currently building a zap using a webhook as the trigger. Below is a sample part of the payload I would be receiving.
 

attributes:

default_name

Tony Stark

default_email

tony@starkindustries.com

AskaQuestion_Subject-Line

How much does this service cost?

default_source

app

default_url

null

default_avatar

null

 

I’m trying to use the webhook pick off child key feature to pick off
 

default_name , deffault_email and default_Subject-Line


from the payload so that only those items will be listed lower down in my zap. 

QUESTON

How do I write the syntax code in the Pick off Child Key field to accomplish this. Thanks in Advance :)

Hi @BarryE 

Good question.

Can you post screenshots with how the data is returned from the Webhook trigger step?

Hey Troy, 

I’ve attached the screenshot below. 
 

 

So just to confirm my question I’m trying to see if I can remove all the unwanted tributes and keep the default_name, default_email and AskaQuestion_Message

There’s no need to remove the unwanted attributes that come thru on the Zap trigger webhook data payload.

Simply map the desired data points in your Zap action steps using the ‘custom’ option.
