Now, it’s time for setting up the Webhooks, Let’s have a look at the procedures.

Configuring Webhooks

You’ll need to create a feed as you would do for any other add-ons to configure Webhooks for a form. To begin, go to your Form Settings and click on the Webhooks tab. Then click on the Add New button. Next, set up the feed for your Webhooks.


1 Name: Enter a name for your feed. The name will never be displayed anywhere. For example, we have entered MailBluster-Example.



2 Request URL: Enter the URL where this request will be sent to. We have entered (https://api.mailbluster.com/api/leads), for example. This setting also supports merge tags.



3 Request Method: Choose the HTTP method that you want to perform. The supported methods are GETPOSTPUTPATCH, and DELETE. Here, we have selected POST to send the form data to MailBluster.



4 Request Format: Select the format for the Webhooks request. Two supported formats are FORM and JSON. We are using JASON here.



5 Request Headers: You can configure one or more HTTP headers here to send with the request.


Note: The Content-Type header is automatically set to application/JSON during feed processing when the Request Format is set to JSON, and the Request Method is set to POST or PUT.

6 Request Body: You will define here what data should be sent with the request. There are two options, such as – All Fields and Select Fields. We have selected Select Fields here.



7 Field Values: This dynamic setting will allow you to define the keys and values to be sent in the request body.



8 Webhook Condition: Like any other add-ons, conditional logic can be set here. To put conditional logic, check the Enable Condition and configure the rules which should be matched for this request to be sent.



9 Finally, click on the Update Settings button to finish the configuration.


Congratulations! Your Gravity Forms is now hooked with MailBluster through Webhooks for growing your subscriber’s list.


Happy Sending 💛
