So I’m really confused about where JSON inputs figure in Webhook Automation with scripter combinator.

Let me explain - so I have a webhook - let’s call it whatever here is a random one:

So I’ve just configured it with Insomnia and everything works and comes back with Success and that’s great - I’m excited but…

I want to pass variables to this Webhook… however no matter what I try it just doesn’t register. Here is the JSON I’m passing to my Webhook:

{“Company”: “HereBoy”, “Text”: “More Flavor”}

Here is my code in the script:

let table = base.getTable("SMS");
let inputC = input.config(); 
await table.updateRecordAsync('rec69N1WoIfzlUXJ1', {
    "LinkID" : inputC.Company,

Webhook seems to be registering the values that are coming in when I check:

Shared with CloudApp

But when it’s a “set in stone” text it works - however my custom variable isn’t registered… if I could pass custom variables to the webhook for my script to work with that would be soooo awesome… maybe I’m fetching them wrong?

Thank you!

You've probably figured this one out by now, but I suspect that within the Script Action you've simply forgotten to add the input from the Webhook for your "company" body key/value.


For an extra tip, note how I'm using a deconstruction method on the input.config() to simplify the extraction of value data - it's very easy once you understand how it works, and saves a lot of doubling up when you start to deal with lots of input.config() variables.
