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?

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

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

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

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..

Can you post a screenshot of the returned error?

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

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.
