Hi everyone,
I'm trying to create an automation that updates the record based on info from a webhook. Currently I have created a webhook containing some usernames and based on that I want to find a username in my airtable and update it with info from webhook.
My plan was to:
1. Create an automation with webhook trigger
2. Run a custom script which finds a certain record ID based on username received from webhook
3. Use that record ID for an update record action

I'm stuck on step 2 since I don't know how to create a custom script that returns record ID that can be used in further actions. Any help is appreciated!

What part of Step 2 are you stuck on? Do you know JavaScript and just need help tweaking the details? Or are you unfamiliar with coding and don’t know where to start?

If you are writing a script and need help debugging, try posting your code and screenshots of your base and screenshots of running your code.

If you do not have code, are you interested in learning to code, or do you just want working code? If you just want working code, do you have budget to hire someone to write the code for you?
