Is it possible to create a webhook in netlify? I don’t want to use zapier, integromat, parabola. This has to be always on and always ‘listening’ ready to respond when it gets data.
My situation is this.
- Airtable record updated
- Run automation in airtable that sends recordid + meta data to a webhook I’d create in a function in netlify.
- Function processes data and then sends it to pusher (web notifications)
Is this possible with netlify and if so, how would I go about it please?
I’m not 100% sure, but you probably can’t do this on Netlify. Netlify isn’t a live server that can keep waiting for webhooks, it’s a CDN. It takes files and publishes them to the internet.
Maybe services that Heroku that can actually run a live application would help you. But again, I’m not 100% sure.
Hi, @JonathanLyon. I do believe that either a function or a background function would meet the requirements above:
