POST form data after form submitted

Hi Team,

I am currently trying to build out a little webhook using automtion forms.


I want to be able to send a json payload containing the form data so that can be sent somewhere else for processing.

For example: I want to create a new backend service and my fiends would be:
- Service name(string field)
- Database require?(check box)


I want to be able to send a POST request once the form is submitted to an endpoint which will take the json payload "{"svc-name": "{{ form.svc-name }}, "db-required": false}" for provisioning by another service.

Currently I can't figure out or find any documentation on how to access the fields from the submitted form data.

Any help on this would be amazing!

Welcome to the community.  Take a look at this link for smart value in relates to JSON for automation for Jira -

Since you mentioned "Forms" data (formally know as Proforma Forms), unless you map your form element to your Jira/JSM issue's field,  there is no way for one to retrieve the Forms' content in the Cloud env.  As of now Forms RESI APIs are only available for Atlassian's DC/Server env, and I believe they are working on it to make them available for the Cloud env.

With that being said, if you mapped your Forms elements to actual Jira/JSM issues fields, then you can just obtain those element values from smart value for issues.

Here is how you can do to conduct the Forms element mapping to Jira/JSM issue fields -

Hope this helps.
