So I’m integrating a CRM with Zapier to get new leads information, but when I test this trigger, instead of receiving lead’s info all I get is: querystring. I did 2 tests before and they worked but now it doesn’t.

Hi @DavidSW 

Good question.

Query String will be any variables sent as part of the webhook URL.

That is anything after the ?

e.g. https://zapier.com/apps/webhook/help?test=true&v=0

I’m trying to transfer my customers information from on CRM to another, trough a webhook, but instead of receiveing a test information I was receiveing the message: querystring.

So in this case “querysting” is it an error? or why am I getting this instead of the test information?

The querystring will always appears in the DATA OUT from the Zap trigger for a webhook.

If there are querystring parameters sent, then those will be nested in the DATA OUT.

If there are no other data points above the querystring, then it means a blank webhook was sent.

Seems like perhaps your webhook request is not configured correctly in the originating app.

We would need to see screenshots with how your webhook request is configured correctly in the originating app.
