Hi Zapier community, 

I have seen people claiming that you can use Zapier Webhook to automatically post new items of a RSS feed to a Mastodon account.

Would anyone know the exact steps? I already have an access token etc. but not sure how to populate the fields in Zapier Webhook. I can retrieve title, teaser, image url, article url and keywords. The latter I will “translate” into hashtags, and I already know how to achieve this part.

Many thanks in advance

You have first to create an application on Mastodon in your Developper section, for example

https://mastodon.social/settings/applications

Add the necessary information (url is https://zapier.com), then uncheck all the boxes already checked, and check write:statuses to publish statuses on Mastodon.

 

Then create the Webhook in your Zap, with:

Test and go live :)

Thank you very much, that is very helpful.
