Good evening,

 

I am trying to send a message to Discord via webhook when the RSS feed updates with new content but I keep getting invalid JSON content.

I simply just want to post a subject from the RSS feed and the body.

 

Anyone had any issues doing this?

Hi @sly433 

Please post screenshots with how your Zap steps are configured along with the encountered error and specific example for us to have context, thanks.

Hi Troy,


Apologies, I am very new to this, just trying to get a simple message sent for now.

Removed the webhook for obvious reasons.

This is the error that Zapier spits out when trying to test it.

Can you post a screenshot of the returned error?

Can you link to the API endpoint documentation you are referencing to configure the webhook request?

When using POSTMAN, I can get the message to appear in Discord just fine? I simply just want that message to appear in Discord but Zapier seems to be blocking it or not accepting it for some reason..

Why not try to use this Discord action to Send Channel Message?

 

I do not have manager server permission on this Discord hence the need to use a webhook.
