Using Zapier to catch a webhook from ActiveCampaign.

by Dave | activecampaign

Active Campaign automation was Zapier.

So what we’re trying to do is connect active campaigns Zapier. So I’ll show you what we’re going to do here we’re just going to set up Zapier connected Active Campaign setup a zap and then inside of Active Campaign will have an automation setup that has a web hook does Zapier probably the most important part is you actually have to add a contact to the automation to make sure there’s a connection. So let’s dive right in.

So inside deep here, let’s make is out. And we’re going to start with Active Campaign want to go to show less common options new web hook new automation web hooks, save and continue, I’m going to connect to an account and inside your account, you need to go up here in the upper right hand corner my settings and should be developer we need the API URL and off screen screen, I’m connected this there’s a window that’s opened up. So by paste that in I’m going to connect to Active Campaign.

And it’s thinking right now. So then right there. And just to be sure, I’m going to test it to make sure it’s actually working. We’re going to do save and continue. Now I actually have to go into Active Campaign, set up an automation and then use the web hooks.

I’m going to copy this. Now go back here go to automation. I’m going to create a new automation starting from scratch. We’re going to just continue and we are not going to have a trigger.

I’m going to call it a pure save that make it active. And I would build this out. But for the purpose of this, we just want to show how to connect. So there we go right there, pasting that web hooks save it.

Now I’m going to go back to here and look so okay, we say okay, I did this, you know what I’m going to go and add a contact and this is kind of the biggie so I’m going to go here find the contact and this one right here. I will simply add them to the automation this automation so that it sends information to Xavier so that way when we click on the next step, so the automation is there. Let me just refresh and wonder if this is going to show up on the sidebar there.

So I went and did it. Now when I click on okay, I did this there so the test is successful solo so Zapier knows that the web hook is set up properly so then I can go on to the next step. So that’s how I set up an Active Campaign automation was a view.
