API Integration lets you listen for events on your DataGroomr account so your integration can automatically trigger reactions.
DataGroomr uses webhooks to notify your application when an event happens in your account.
Begin using webhooks with your DataGroomr integration in just two steps:
- Create an endpoint on your server
- Register the endpoint with DataGroomr
What are webhooks
Webhooks refers to a combination of elements that collectively create a notification and reaction system within a larger integration.
Metaphorically, webhooks are like a phone number that DataGroomr calls to notify you of activity in your DataGroomr account. The activity could be the merge or convert of Salesforce records. The webhook endpoint is the person answering that call who takes actions based upon the specific information it receives.
Non-metaphorically, the webhook endpoint is just more code on your server, which could be written in any programming language. The webhook endpoint has an associated URL (e.g., https://example.com/webhooks). The DataGroomr notifications are Event objects in JSON format. This Event object contains the relevant information about what just happened, including the type of event and the data associated with that event.
