Create a POST request

Before testing your trigger, you will need to send test data to your webhook via a POST request. The steps listed below explain how to make the POST request via Postman, but you’re welcome to use any program you’d like.

  1. Copy the webhook URL generated by Zapier.
  2. In Postman, click New to start a new request.
  3. Select HTTP Request from the Create New menu.
    Postman’s Create New request menu, showing HTTP Request under the Building Blocks section
  4. Paste the Zapier webhook URL you copied earlier into the URL box.
  5. Select POST from the dropdown to the left of the webhook URL.

  6. Select the Body tab, choose the form-data radio button, and then enter the keys and appropriate test data from the following table:
    Key Value
    name <Test name>
    email <Test email>
    phone_number <Test phone number>
    sms_consent true
    Postman form-data body setup for name, email, phone number, and SMS consent
  7. Click Send to send the test data to Zapier.
  8. If the POST request is successful, you’ll see the line "status": "success" in the response.
