Community Articles 3 Simple, but Powerful, Automation Webhooks

Our digital world is being built on top of API services. And Webhooks are the operators that enable these API services to communicate with each other. Using Cosmic Webhooks to customize your service-to-service communications, you can create some powerful automated workflows, helping you better communicate with your team and the world.

Below are a few practical use-cases for Cosmic Webhooks:

Add Webhooks to your Bucket by going to Your Bucket > Settings > Billing > Add-ons

1. Slack: Send notifications to your team



Slack is a preferred chat tool to help teams stay in constant communication. Cosmic integrates easily with your Slack workspaces, allowing you to send chat notifications whenever content is added, edited, or deleted in your Cosmic Bucket.  This is great for when you would like to maintain a channel to log all content edits in between mocking co-workers with gifs.

2. Netlify: Build your website automatically



Netlify is a web hosting provider for your modern web projects that allows for some amazing automation capabilities. One of these nice automated capabilities is the ability to trigger automatic builds. Connecting your Cosmic Bucket to Netlify is a cinch, allowing you to rebuild your Netlify-hosted web project automagically whenever content is edited in your Cosmic Bucket. Follow the link below to learn exactly how to do this:

3. SendGrid: Send email notifications to your team



We recently released Cosmic Functions to help developers deploy code quickly and easily. A clear use-case for quickly deployed endpoints via Cosmic Functions is to use them for Webhook endpoints. Check out the Webhook SendGrid Email Function that enables you to send an email whenever content is added, edited, or deleted in your Cosmic Bucket. This is great for when your micro-managing content editor absolutely must read every draft from the comfort of their email inbox.

BONUS: Zapier Integrations



Zapier may be the undisputed king of webhooks. Their ecosystem of thousands of apps that communicate with each other allow you to create some powerful integrations. Use the Cosmic Zapier App (currently invite only 😉) to connect your Cosmic Bucket to any number of services including Google's Product Suite, Salesforce, Facebook, Twitter, and more.
