Webhooks Integration

Webhook Configuration for Document Generation

Webhooks provide a powerful way to automate document creation by allowing external applications to trigger actions within our system. By configuring a webhook, you can set up an automated workflow that creates a new document every time a POST request is sent to your unique webhook URL with the required JSON payload.

This guide will help you understand how to use your webhook for seamless document generation.

Step 1: Obtain Your Unique Webhook URL

You will be provided with a unique URL that our system will monitor for incoming POST requests:

  • Locate the "Your Unique Webhook URL" section on the Webhook Configuration screen.
  • Copy the provided URL to your clipboard.

This URL is specific to your account and will be the endpoint that receives the JSON data to generate documents.

Step 2: Integrate Webhook into Third-Party Application

After copying your unique webhook URL:

  • Paste the URL into the webhook settings of the third-party application or service you want to integrate with.
  • Ensure that the third-party service is configured to send POST requests to this URL with the JSON data structured as required.

Step 3: Format Your JSON Data

To successfully create documents, the JSON keys must match the fields or tags defined in your document template:

  • Refer to the "Sample JSON Object" displayed on the Webhook Configuration screen as a guide.
  • Structure your JSON payload to match this format, where each key corresponds to a specific field or tag in your template, and the values are the data you want to populate in the document.


  "variable 1": "Value for variable 1",
  "tag 2": "Value for tag 2",
  "tag 3": "Value for tag 3",
  "tag 4": "Value for tag 4",
  "tag 5": "Value for tag 5",
  "LIST_ITEM": ["List item 1", "List item 2"]

Troubleshooting and Support

If you encounter any issues or have questions about configuring your webhook:

  • Review the integration settings in the third-party application to confirm that the webhook URL and JSON data are correctly set up.
  • Consult our help resources or reach out to our support team for assistance with troubleshooting any webhook-related problems.

To begin the setup:

  • Locate the field labeled "Enter Your Webhook Endpoint URL."
  • Input the full URL of the webhook endpoint provided by your server or third-party service where you wish to receive notifications of generated documents.
