Upgraded Webhook Support

December 6, 2021
Upgraded Webhook Support
The webhook update in the new VRdirect Studio allows enterprises to integrate VR applications even more effectively into existing IT infrastructure. For example, the solution can now transfer individual session IDs via webhooks, i.e., URLs that are transmitted when certain events occur. This allows events triggered within a session to be flawlessly assigned to the respective user session and passed on to other applications, such as an analytics tool, a shopping cart, or a support chat system. In general webhook are classified as an advanced/pro feature.

Webhook General Recap

Webhook General Recap

With IFTTT specifically, we proceed by:

1. Creating a new recipe

2. In the “if” section we choose webhook, then “receive a web request”. Choose some random event name

3. In the “then” we connect a google spreadsheet

4. We retrieve the webhook URL by going into the webhook settings (https://ifttt.com/maker_webhooks/settings), then going to the unique personal URL they provide, and there they explain how to build the final webhook URL

5. Lastly we paste the URL in the studio, and tweak the values

Sample:
https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/test_project/with/key/dHbhXhBRC1w9vRu3lYch5M?value1=tum&value3={session-id}

Side note: in a URL, everything after the “?” are parameters formatted with key=value.
For example: https://www.google.com/search?q=hello
