Can I include webhookResponse.body.xx as part of my webhook url?

Jar Lady March 13, 2024

Hihi, i have a jira automation rule whereby i need to retrieve webhooks response data e.g. {"animal:"cat"}. I want this to be included as part of the webhooks url e.g. https://api.com/v1/{{webhookResponse.body.animal}} so that it will be generated as https://api.com/v1/cat. Can this be done in Jira automation rule? My jira software version is v8.20.10.

Hi @Jar Lady 

Yes, that should work.

What do you observe happening? 

And, have you confirmed that the content of the {{webhookData.body}} (or {{webhookReponse.body}} ) contains the information in the format you expect?  You could confirm this by writing the value to the audit log and checking after the rule execution.

For example...

  • Are there multiple records in the body, such as: cat, dog, squirrel, velociraptor?
  • Is there any encoding in the attribute, such as newlines, tabs, etc.?

In these cases, adjustments would be needed to include the value(s) in the URL.

 

If that does not help, please post an image of your complete automation rule, images of any relevant actions / conditions / branches, an image of the audit log details showing the rule execution, and explain what is not working as expected.  Those will provide context for the community to offer ideas.  Thanks!

Kind regards,
Bill
