Hello,

I’m developing a custom integration to generate websites from Airtable.

Wondering if there is any webhook to check when a field is updated via API.

What i want to achieve is to receive it in my server.

Thanks

As @ScottWorld has suggested, you are free to mimic webhooks by writing them in Javascript as script actions. But unlike true webhook support, the burden is on you to not only build every aspect of the hooking process, but to also utilize a triggering action and lastly - ensure that the number of actions doesn’t exceed the arbitrary quotas established for your account.

That’s a lot of responsibility that vendors try to shield users from by providing true webhook features that everyday users can tap into without these complexities. Until a fully-baked event model and webhook layer is added, this is the state of webhookery in Airtable.

Thanks for the explanation.

Do you have any code sample? Also when a base is duplicated the the script will be lost so for me this is not a solution for now.

Thanks again

Okay - well, you best pursue a non-script approach.

I'm late to the party from 2021 but is this all sorted now with:

https://airtable.com/developers/web/api/create-a-webhook

so you can setup hooks via calling an API and they stay around for a week or so?
