Incoming Webhooks are a simple way to pass profiles from various apps into LinkedFusion. Creating an Incoming Webhook gives you a unique URL to which you send a payload with the LinkedIn profile URL.

Getting started with Incoming Webhooks

We're going to walk through a really quick 4-step process (if you've already done some of these things it'll be even easier) that will have you posting messages using Incoming Webhooks in a few minutes:

  1. Create LinkedFusion Account

Navigate to https://app.linkedfusion.io/web/user/register And create your account. Select your plan. If you already have an account login into your account.

2. Create a Sequence to work with Incoming Webhook
Create a sequence and select Webhook as the target audience. A box will prompt asking you to add any custom fields you want to include.

Note: Adding Custom Fields is optional, if you don't want any dynamic values added to your sequence messages, proceed further without custom fields.

Copy the Webhook URL and send a test request to authenticate the connection.

POST request:

POST https://app.linkedfusion.io/web/hooks/XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
Content-type: application/json
{
"profile_link": "https://www.linkedin.com/in/exxyyxni",
"custom_field_1": "Custom Value" // (Optional)Add this field
// inorder to pass custom values
// to your sequence messages
}

3. Adding Custom Fields to Sequence Messages:

Once the webhook URL has been authenticated, continue to the message screen.

In the message box, Custom Fields Dropdown is added, and here you can add these Custom Values in your LF Messages.

4. If Debugging is needed
When you post data to webhook it may give the following Errors depending on the issue:

If the Profile link is empty

- Profile link not found

If the Profile link is in the wrong format

-Profile link is invalid

If the Profile link is a first-degree connection

- Already connected with this profile.

If the Profile link already exists

- This LinkedIn profile already exists.

"Key" is wrong (It's always "profile_link")

- Invalid Data

Successfully added profile

- success

Error found when profile added

- error
