Can you create a webhook in Netlify

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.

  1. Airtable record updated
  2. Run automation in airtable that sends recordid + meta data to a webhook I’d create in a function in netlify.
  3. 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:
