How To Send Data Using Incoming Webhook #

You can use any external platform that suits your needs to send data using the Incoming Webhook feature. E.g., here, I used Postman as an external platform.

To use this Incoming Webhook, choose Post as the Request Method and Form-data as the Request Format.
Then, paste the Webhook Link, map the Key field following the Incoming Webhook’s Field Key, and enter the appropriate Value that suits your needs. Finally, click on the Send button to create the ticket.

How To Reply Ticket Using Incoming Webhook #

Customers can also reply to a ticket using the incoming webhook. However, some mandatory things are required to reply to a ticket.

This includes the Customer email, Ticket content, Ticket title, and ensuring that the Ticket Title is the same as the one you used while creating the ticket. Here, you can see a reply is sent to the previously created ticket from Postman using Incoming Webhook.
