GUIDE: How to Send All Data from the Previous Zap Step to another Zap via Webhooks

 

Issue

How to send data from a previous Zap step to a Webhook action without having to remap all the data points.

 

Solution

Use webhooks to configure the data transfer.

Webhooks are used to chain Zaps together.

This solution will use 2 Zaps.

Zap 1 - Steps

  1. Trigger: [App] - [Event]
    1. NOTE: Can be any app event
  2. Action: Webhook - POST
    1. Select POST for the Action Event
    2. Add your webhook from the Zap 2 trigger step as the URL field value
    3. NOTE: That’s it, don’t add/remove/adjust any other of the default settings
      1. By doing so, this will send all the data from the app’s Zap trigger event to the webhook which will trigger Zap 2
      2. Data fields description: If you leave these empty, all fields from the previous step will be used.

 

Zap 2 - Steps

  1. Trigger: Webhook - Catch Hook
    1. NOTE: This will generate the webhook URL to place in the Zap 1 step 2 config as instructed above
    2. NOTE: Make sure to test your Zap 1 step 2 in order to send data to the Zap 2 trigger webhook so you can configure your Zap 2 action steps
  2. Action: [app] - [event]
    1. NOTE: Up to you to determine how you want to use the data from Zap 1!
