SFTP Hooks

SFTP Hooks

You can now use Webio SFTP hooks to combine the power of webhook realtime posts and SFTP file transfers to deliver webhook calls as JSON files to your organisation's Webio SFTP folder for retrieval.  

You will need to configure your Webio SFTP and generate your organisation's API key

Once you have set up the SFTP this can be used to retrieve or post files to the site. 

SFTP hooks can only be used for post requests.

sftp.webio.com - this is where you save your API key file and retrieve your files from 
sftphook.webio.com - this is the URL you enter into your organisation screen webhook setup as the URL

Step 1

Save your API key as a text file called apikey.txt and transfer this to your sftp.webio.com folder.  It may take c. 10 minutes for the key to be processed.  If you need to update your key, place a your new file there and that will replace the old key.

Step 2

Create your webhook entering the URL as sftphook.webio.com/.  Check out Adding in webhooks for how to do this.  Subscribe to the required Post events.

Your webhooks will now post to your folder, as a JSON file, at sftp.webio.com/ for you to retrieve.
