TableFlow uses webhooks to push real-time notifications about your data imports. For example, you can use webhooks on TableFlow to get notified when a user completes a file import:
- Your user imports a CSV or Excel file using the embedded TableFlow importer on your web app
- TableFlow notifies your system, via a webhook, that a data import has been completed
- Your system can use the API to paginate through the imported data, or download the data directly as a CSV file.
Configure your application to receive webhooks
To get started, create an endpoint where you can receive webhooks. For this example, we’ll use Svix Play to easily set up a test endpoint.
1. Create an endpoint
Go to play.svix.com and copy the provided URL that will receive webhooks. You can also provide your own endpoint URL instead.
2. Add the endpoint to TableFlow
Navigate to your workspace settings in TableFlow cloud. Under the “Webhooks” section, there is where we’ll add the endpoint we just created and choose the
import.completed event to be notified when users complete a file import:
3. Send a test event
Send a test event to your webhook by navigating to the “Testing” tab, selected the event to send, and pressing “Send Example”:
You’ll be able to see the webhook received on Svix Play, and under the “Logs” tab of the webhooks settings:
After configuring your application to receive webhooks, all subscribed events will be sent to the endpoint. You can now import a file to test out your new webhook!
