Use case: Configure a notification via webhook

Consider the following scenario: You want to create a critical task in Jira for the ops team whenever a file upload to Totango fails. Use Zapier to connect company data points, and connect Totango notifications with Jira.

  1. Create a Zapier webhook catch trigger.

  2. Configure the webhook in URL in Customer Data Hub notifications. (See above.)
  3. Configure Jira ticket creation using Zapier. To start configuring this webhook in Zapier, you'll need to send a sample webhook trigger and make sure will "catch" it. 
    • Activate webhook catching in Zapier (click OK, I did this).
    • Click the webhook test button (near the preview payload link) to send a sample payload to the defined Webhook URL. This is how the webhook testing looks like:
    • Go back to Zapier, to configure the Jira ticket creation.

    • Once the Jira ticket creation action is ready, you only need to test it.

Now whenever a file upload fails, a Jira task is automatically created for your company's ops team.


Question: Which email notifications will I get?

Answer: You can choose to receive notifications upon upload process started, failed, partial success, and success.

Question: In case there was a failure, will I get the failure reason?

Answer: Yes, the notification will include all the relevant upload process information.

 Question: When should I expect to get the notification email?

Answer: The notification email will be sent immediately when the configured event happened. 

 Question: The new emails are bypassing my email tool filtering, why is that?

Answer: Ensure your email filters are set to allow a sender named "Totango Integration."

 Question: Do I need to configure Slack in Totango in order for the notifications to appear in Slack? 

Answer: Yes, Slack notifications are sent using Zoe for Slack.

 Question: I cannot see public channels in the Slack channels drop-down.

Answer: You can only select public channels, which Zoe must be a member of. You should invite @zoe to the channel before configuring it in Customer Data Hub notifications slack channels).
