Mautic Webhooks

You can use Webhooks in Mautic to automatically send updates back to your WordPress site when a contact’s profile has been updated. You can also automatically generate new WordPress user accounts for Mautic contacts.

Webhook setup

Navigate to the webhook settings (accessible via the gear the the top right of your app) and create a new webhook.

 

Depending on the action you’re trying to perform, there are two ways to format the Webhook POST URL:

To update an existing record

To update an existing user and pull any new data from Drip for that contact, the URL for the webhook should look like the following:

http://mydomain.com/?wpf_action=update&access_key=YOURACCESSKEY

 

To create a new user

To create a new user, use the following URL:

http://mydomain.com/?wpf_action=add&access_key=YOURACCESSKEY

You can also specify additional parameters in user creation. For example, to send the user a welcome email containing a link to log in on your site, use the following:

http://mydomain.com/?wpf_action=add&access_key=YOURACCESSKEY&send_notification=true

You can also specify a specific user role to be assigned to the new user. For example, to set the new user to the “customer” role, use the following:

http://mydomain.com/?wpf_action=add&access_key=YOURACCESSKEY&role=customer

Note that you have to have registered a “customer” role on your site for this to work. By default users will be assigned the role of “subscriber”.

The add method will update a user if an existing user already exists. It will not create a duplicate user.

Note: By default, user accounts will be created with their email address as the username and a randomly generated password. However, if you have created a custom username field and password field in Mautic, and enabled these fields in WP Fusion for sync with user_login and user_pass on your website, the new users will be given the usernames and passwords stored in their Mautic contact record.

User passwords

New user accounts will be created with an automatically generated password. If you’d like to use this password in your email marketing, you can send the password back to Infusionsoft after it has been generated.

In the Webhooks section of the General settings tab, check the box for Return Password, and select a field in Mautic where the password should be stored.

After a new user is created, their automatically generated password will now be saved back to their contact record, and you can use a merge field to include it in an email. The username will be the contact’s email address.
