Hi,
I am trying to set an incoming webhook to create a new record.
When testing the webhook, it doesn’t work. I got a 404 response and the test gives me the following error: “This URL has not received any requests recently.”
That is happening immediately after I curl the hook.
anybody with the same error / situation?

Yep, I am getting the same issue even when I click the test link in the webhook automation UI.

Anybody else seeing this?

You’ll get an error 404 if the test data isn’t sent to the webhook in the proper format.

Ensure these things, which I pulled from the support article on webhooks:

  • Check that you sent a valid JSON payload. A tool like https://jsonlint.com may be useful.
  • To add multiple variables, make sure you properly format your content as a JSON object ( i.e. {"Company": "Airtable", "Name": "Testing"} ).
  • Check that your request was sent with a Content-Type header of “application/json”.
  • Check that you made a POST request.

Thanks, Scott. I’m all good after reading through the docs. It makes sense that it needs a payload to test.
