SendGrid is a cloud-based email service that offers reliable and scalable sputions for businesses of all sizes. It has over 100,000 customers including more than 60% of the Inc. 5000 list. SendGrid is considered a leader in its market space. It has emerged as the most loved email spution for the developers. Integrating Webhooks By Connect with SendGrid provides numerous benefits to customers.
Webhooks By Connect is an iOS app built on the Firebase platform. It helps developers to connect their web applications with mobile apps. It takes the customers to next level of integration of web services. The app sends push notifications to the users when new activities occur in their web application. The push notifications are delivered through Apple Push Notification Service (APNS), which automatically delivers messages to users’ devices. APNS then forwards the push notifications to Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM. service. FCM sends the message to the registered device client and manages the delivery status of messages. When a user clicks on a push notification, it opens the associated app. The app then sends the user to the relevant page. This process even occurs when the app is closed on the device.
Webhooks By Connect is designed to integrate with any web service or platform. It can be used to integrate with any web service that offers a REST API. Many integrations can be fulfilled by sending data from one service to another. Sending data from one service to another is quite common with mobile apps and websites too. In order to take advantage of SendGrid’s powerful features, we must integrate it with Webhooks By Connect. Webhooks By Connect can be integrated with SendGrid to send emails via webhooks or configure custom mail settings. When integrating Webhooks By Connect with SendGrid, there are four different methods available. sending a single notification, sending multiple notifications using a batch call, sending bulk notifications, and pushing content using a POST action. All these methods will now be explained in detail.
Sending a Single Notification
The Webhooks By Connect-SendGrid integration enables users to send a single notification at a time. It uses GET method and requires three elements. event name, event payload, and type of notification (in this case, email. The combination of these three elements creates a unique signature that is used to identify that particular notification. Here are the steps required for integration:
Step 1. First, create an application on SendGrid and add your webhook URL to receive notifications from Webhooks By Connect. Then, you can use curl command-line top to test your setup. To do so, run the fplowing command:
curl –i -X POST “https://api.sendgrid.com/api/mail/v3/email/send” -F “webhook=<YOUR WEBHOOK URL>” -F “commands[events]=notification” -F “commands[subject]=Thank you!” -F “commands[content]=This is my test email” -F “commands[event_type]=email” -F “auth=<API KEY>” -v –compressed
Step 2. The response will show that the request was successful:
Step 3. Finally, you should check your SendGrid account for newly sent emails. If everything went well, you should have received an email similar to this:
Sending Multiple Notifications Using a Batch Call
SendGrid supports batching events so that they can be sent together without making individual requests for each event within a batch call:
Step 1. To take advantage of this feature, you need to set up your event-subscription endpoint by fplowing the steps given below:
Step 2. You can then send multiple notifications using a batch call by passing all events during the same request:
Step 3. SendGrid will process all events in your request and send them together as a batch request to Webhooks By Connect:
