Webhooks are crucial for optimizing operations and delivering a seamless customer experience. By triggering immediate actions when specific events occur, webhooks streamline business processes and enhance overall efficiency. Their flexibility allows for customization to meet specific integration needs, and they enable connectivity with external services, supporting a wide range of applications and tools.
How webhooks work in general
A webhook is a way for one system or application to send real-time data to another system or application when a specific event occurs. It is a method of communication between different software applications, allowing them to exchange information instantly. When the triggering event occurs, the first system makes an HTTP request to a URL provided by the second system, transmitting data about the event. Webhooks are commonly used for automating processes, integrating systems, and enabling real-time notifications in various applications and services.
Why choose the ZigiOps webhook?
Enterprises embrace custom APIs for a multitude of compelling reasons. These tailored interfaces empower organizations to create integrations that precisely fit their unique needs and requirements, ensuring that their processes are seamlessly connected. Custom APIs also play a vital role in bridging the compatibility gap, allowing businesses to integrate with legacy systems that lack standardized interfaces or support for modern protocols.
Transferring important business data from a conventional system like Jira, ServiceNow, or Salesforce to a custom-built enterprise platform is not an easy task. It requires that opting for a custom solution like the ZigiOps webhook might be the ideal solution. In just a few clicks, it makes a secure and stable connection between your systems of preference (ITOM, Cloud, CRM, DevOps, ITSM) and the company’s in-house system. The webhook acts as a stable bridge that eliminates the possibility of data inconsistencies or duplication. Any hint of a data silo is left in the past.
Our team possesses the expertise to support your integration needs, encompassing an array of commercial systems and connectors, including those that may not be explicitly featured in our portfolio.
What is the ZigiOps webhook?
The ZigiOps webhook is a comprehensive yet easy-to-use and deploy solution. Its main goal is to allow companies to feed data into their custom-built systems.
When deployed in the enterprise’s IT environment, the ZigiOps webhook starts working instantly. It connects easily with the source system (the one we want to extract data from) and loads the extracted data from it directly into the recipient system (our custom-built one). For example, we would like to send Dynatrace alerts/problems into our legacy system. Once alerts are collected, the webhook loads them to the target system – via a simple URL path.
No need for additional coding, scripts, or add-ons. The collected data from the source systems enters the webhook in an easy-to-digest JSON format.
For current ZigiOps customers, the webhook is available in the platform’s system menu.

Most common use case scenarios with the ZigiOps webhook:
An all-encompassing integration solution, such as the ZigiOps webhook, offers diverse capabilities. It caters to a broad spectrum of integration scenarios, providing a scalable and secure tool. This solution effortlessly unifies custom, internal, and commercial systems, facilitating seamless data transfer without supplementary scripting or add-ons. The Webhook adopts the innovative no-code platform’s user-friendly approach to system integration, prioritizing simplicity, and meticulous attention to detail.
Use case scenarios:
- Example: Lead and Customer Data Integration
In this scenario, a B2B company uses a custom-built CRM system to manage leads and customer data while utilizing Salesforce for marketing automation, sales, and customer relationship management. They want to ensure that lead data is integrated between their internal system and Salesforce for effective marketing and sales activities. For this, they use the webhook method of data transfer between the connected systems.
Reason for integration:
The company’s marketing team uses Salesforce to manage new leads. A new lead enters the Salesforce system. A case is created, containing important lead details – like name, contacts, and any issues associated with the lead. It all must be logged into the custom CRM system for future activities. However, the communication between Salesforce and the custom CRM is not straightforward. The specific nature of the latter requires an out-of-the-box solution that would act as a bridge between them and enable the smooth transfer of data. Also, it would help the IT teams to overcome any possibilities for faulty data or duplication, bottlenecks, or delays in communication. The ZigiOps webhook is a scalable and easy solution for this. It quickly fetches the desired data from Salesforce and feeds it to the custom CRM without limitation of the entities. As a result, the in-house CRM has access to the lead’s case and everything related to it – including lead status changes, conversion information, and any interactions or engagements recorded in Salesforce. That allows the company’s sales department to have a complete overview of their clients and properly set communication with them.
- Example: Jira and Custom Enterprise System Integration via Webhook
A large manufacturing company relies on Jira for managing project tasks, bug tracking, and workflow management. They have also developed a custom-built enterprise system to oversee their production, inventory, and supply chain processes. The company aims to streamline operations by integrating these two systems for real-time data synchronization.
Reason for integration:
A new task is created in Jira. It contains valuable project-related data that is tied up to an upcoming project. Like any other project in progress, this one is also accompanied by details regarding its progress, current state, and the rest of the steps until it is finished. These all represent crucial for the organization’s tasks – a must-do.
The same scenario is valid when we have a bug in Jira that is critical to be logged in the custom IT system for further evaluation. Stakeholders are also coordinated.
A webhook is needed. It overcomes those obstacles when connecting an in-house system with a popular platform like Atlassian Jira. Slowdowns, errors, and faulty data are some of them. The ZigiOps webhook establishes a stable integration connection between the systems. Based on the pre-defined needs of the IT teams, the webhook effortlessly sends the desired information into the destination system.
Each new bug or project created in Jira is instantly reflected in the custom enterprise system to ensure that production and supply chain teams have real-time visibility into upcoming activities. That also helps IT departments maintain data consistency.
With the introduction of the ZigiOps webhook, you can create custom integrations, seamlessly connect your internal systems, and manage these integrations instantly. Manual data input becomes obsolete, fostering effective collaboration across the organization by providing real-time project information accessibility.
