Webhooks are standardized procedures for communication between servers. They can also be used to connect digital asset management software to external systems. The principle is simple: Events in the core engine - the DAM system - automatically trigger defined actions to be executed on the connected third-party system. With this approach, the creative possibilities are virtually limitless.
With webhooks as a digital asset management connector, you can realize any number of third-party system integrations, including Zapier, Mulesoft by Salesforce, Workato, and Microsoft Flow.
One possible application scenario is communication. Let's say you use Slack for the collaboration of your employees. In this case, you could send a message to the Slack group as soon as a create event takes place in the DAM system, such as the creation of a new product data record.
Webhooks in conjunction with DAM are also an excellent tool for workflows and project management. For example, if you set a “done” status in the task module of the DAM system, a webhook allows you to move a ticket on a KanBan board to the “done” column.
The list of examples goes on and on. Yet one thing is clear: With webhooks, your digital asset management can communicate with any number of third-party solutions. This will help you achieve a significant optimization of your communication basis, especially in areas such as organization and project management. You can also accelerate your workflows with the help of automation.
