API integrations are here to stay and by now many of us know how to use the FileMaker tools to call an API, pass it data, and parse the response. But what if that API does not give an immediate response? Or the remote service needs to send you a notification that something happened? Many APIs do this through webhooks. In this session we explore how to deal with webhooks. How can FileMaker receive those callbacks and those notifications? How does Claris Connect handle this? Webhooks are the answer and they are extremely powerful.
