The Webhook Integration allows you to receive notification callbacks triggered by updates within your IoT in a Box data, alerts and information.

Note: This integration provides both sensor (uplink), gateway(keepalive), and alert events.

  • Verifying things are working
  • Example payloads

Creating a new Webhook

Use the following steps to setup your new webhook on the IoT in a Box side.

  1. Log into your account on the IoT in a Box portal or using the mobile app.
  2. Select the Integrations option and then select the Webhook integration.
  3. Enter the following information to complete the integration:
    • Name: Enter a name for this integration. In case you have multiple integrations, this will help uniquely identify it in the list.
    • Url: Enter the URL that you would like to be called in response to IoT in a Box updates.
    • Headers (optional): Enter headers values in query string format, for example:
      X-Api: secret-key
      Authorization: Token
      will need to be input like this: x-api=my-secret-key&authorization=Token

After saving the Integration, you will see it shown in your list of integrations.

  • You can then edit the integration to make any changes needed.
  • You can also toggle the Integration on/off at any time from here as well. Disabling the integration will stop new data from being sent to the webhook.

Payload Transformation (preview)

The payload transformation is a JavaScript script that can be used to re-structure the outgoing WebHook data.

// Transform webhook payload to non-standard format
// - 'event' contains the standard JSON schema
// - 'metadata' contains fuseData/metadata such as company and location.
// The function Transform must return an object, e.g. {"temperature": 22.5}
function Transform(event, metadata) {
var body = {};

event.payload.forEach(function(item) {
body[] = item.value;

// { "temp": 23, "hum": 75, "rssi": -110 }
return body;

Verifying things are working

You can verify the integration is working by waiting for a new IoT in a Box event (or manually triggering on the device or within the dashboard). As soon as a new event occurs, the webhook will be notified and include the event payload.

You can also use a temporary service, such as RequestBin to get a sense of how things work before integrating payload events into your service.
