Hi, What trigger would we use for this one? I tried using Data Value Change for attribute "Updated At" but it did not work.. Any suggestions?
I do have same scenario to execute. I want to trigger a webhook when a lead is updated. Did you get solution for this? If so, Please share with me.
You may have to anagrammatically work this out using a field to hold a data value change - as it will need to be a trigger. Be wary of too many webhook calls though as they can slow down your instance / processes if you have a lot
Neil, I'm curious what you mean by "anagrammatically work this out"? We have a client situation where this same question is important (and Josh Hill, in our case we'd want to know if it was done through the UI). This seems like a basic requirement for creating a sync framework for a non-standard CRM or other external system (add/update records in Marketo via API; report back to external system any changes made through UI using webhook). -Robert
Webhooks aren't the way to create a full data mirror of your Marketo lead records. They are designed for strategic push or pull in response to interesting data changes, not sending every change outside the system. As Neil said, you will not be able to handle the webhook traffic generated by triggering on every Data Value Changed.
To build a non-native sync you would poll the REST Activity API to detect changes. Sometimes we use webhooks for additional "touchup" on a sync solution but it can't be a dependency.
Thanks Sanford. Don't you still have issue of flagging these changes even for the "touchup" situations?
You can catch a change to a single field (Data Value Changes trigger). It's trying to catch all changes to all fields via the UI that isn't feasible.
Sometimes we use a "sentinel" lead to register changes: a lead that's a known member of a list. By listening on a DVC on that lead, we can issue a webhook call -- but that call just signals a (bulk) call to the REST API (push notification pattern).
