You can utilize the Webhook feature to connect to services outside of Kintone.
But first, what are Webhooks? In Kintone, each app has an option to set up Webhooks. The Kintone Webhook feature allows data of a record of an app to be sent to a particular endpoint in a certain format. This data can be sent at the following timings:
- When a new record is added
- When a record is saved after editing
- When a status of your process management is updated
Why set up a Webhook?
The Kintone Webhooks is a good way to send data to an endpoint without the use of coding. Setting up a Webhook will only involve stating an endpoint, and the timing you would like the data to be sent.
You would though, have to set something up on the endpoint side so that this data could be caught, and be used to your advantage. If you would like to do this without coding, you can use a cloud service like Zapier to catch the Kintone Webhook data, and connect it to other services.
