Important NoteThis version of the API was deprecated. If you still need to automate your data collection processes, and retrieve collected data or make various operations related to your 123FormBuilder account through API calls, you can use our new and improved API v2. Please visit our developer documentation for more details.
Here you can learn how to use the POST Webhook API of our HTML form generator.
The POST Webhook API page is useful in integrating a form with an external application. More precisely, the form submission is the “trigger” and the webhook URL is the resulting “action”.
The logic behind performs a POST action, so it only outputs whether the operation was successful or not.
The webhook URL is specified by the webhookUrl POST parameter, which has to be previously set using
urlencode() in PHP or an equivalent function in another language.
Page URL Example:
https://app.123formbuilder.com/api/forms/[FORM ID]/webhooks.xml?apiKey=[API KEY]&webhookUrl=[YOUR URL]
The above does the exact same thing that the 123FormBuilder – WebHook application does from the Applications section of your form. Also, you cannot link more than ten applications to your form via Webhook.
If you find this method to add Webhooks to your forms much useful, go ahead and create your URL. If not, then try the 123FormBuilder – WebHook integration as described in our step-by-step documentation.
