Hi! I want to update my table based on info received from webhook. I see there's an option of finding a record and then using the record ID update that record. I can't figure out how to, for example, find a certain record based on the username I received from webhook.

Let's say there's a "Name" field in the table and "username" received from webhook. I want to match name with username and then update the rest of the table with some other info from webhook.

Thanks a lot for any help!

Is your webhook a native Airtable automation trigger?

What is the structure of the payload received? Do you have any control over the structure of the payload?

If the structure of the payload is simple enough, you might be able to do this using a no-code approach with a "Find Records” action followed by an “Update Record” action. Find records based on condition, and select a dynamic filter that compares the name with the username. If there is exactly one matching record you can use that record ID in you Update Records action.

If the structure of the payload is more complex, you might need a custom script.

This is exactly what I need! I tried this option before but I had a hard time realizing there was an option to dynamically choose string for conditioning (those dots are very hard to see). Thank you!
