Inbound webhook or external trigger?

How does one trigger retool from an external event? Specifically, my Twilio account needs to POST to a webhook when it receives an inbound SMS message. I would like to use Retool to process that event.

Hey @tforster, welcome to the community :hugs:

That is currently not possible. You would need to abstract that logic with another tool.

I'm thinking of Zapier/Integromat/n8n etc.

Capture it with Airtable and then use Airtable through Graph QL to have retool look at the SMS records.

Hey! Since this thread has been revived I just want to put here that we're now beta testing our new workflows feature that includes support for incoming webhooks :slightly_smiling_face: If you're interested you can sign up here.
