This article features information regarding the webhooks of the CONNECT Chrome Extension.
Webhooks allow you to link the most common CRM and ERP systems with Echobot.
The Echobot webhooks of the CONNECT Chrome extension allow you to transmit the following information to your system:
- a single company dataset
- a single contact dataset as a contact or a lead
Please Note: Echobot provides the data, but the integration of this data into your target system is up to you. Please direct any questions regarding your target application, keywords, setup, and settings to your data integration service provider and/or your CRM or ERP platform provider.
Webhooks are a data transfer technology. The Echobot platform accesses an HTTP address provided by you and transfers the data. Many CRM systems already allow for the reception of data via HTTP, so that your data records can be expanded with information about companies and contacts from the Echobot database.
- You have selected a company in your CONNECT Chrome extension and would like to transfer the company data to your CRM. Click on “Sync” inside the extension.
- Echobot sends the data via HTTP to your specified address
- Your CRM receives the data and saves it into your target database
The selected data will then be transferred in the JSON format. You can choose between three different formatting types:
This type transfers the data in a clearly structured format which is particularly well-suited for software developers and integrators.
This type uses a simplified data structure. It is particularly well-suited for further processing in low-code-tools.
Dies ist ein Format mit vereinfachter Datenstruktur. Es eignet sich besonders für die Weiterverarbeitung in Low-Code-Tools.
- Legacy – (old)
This is the same formatting type as the one used in CONNECT 2.0.
Please note: Only encrypted URLs are allowed (only https://, NO http://). Die HTTPS-Endpunkte müssen ein gültiges Zertifikat haben.
