Receiving HTTP Response after flow is completedAnswered
It seems a webhook is returning an HTTP response immediately after receiving a POST from another source.
Is it also possible to return an HTTP response after the flow has been completed successfully?
Or is this not possible and do I need to create an extra flow step and the end of the flow to inform the endpoint that for example a record has been created in Netsuite.
It is not possible for a "Listener" step in a flow (i.e. a webhook bubble in flow builder) to wait until the flow is done processing before returning an HTTP response. For webhooks, the primary purpose of the listener step is to let the sending application know as quickly as possible that the data has been safely persisted, and then processing of the data will be done afterward.
If you do need to send data back to the sender application after the flow is complete, then the easiest way to do this is via adding a new flow step to the end of your flow.
Thanks for the clear answer Scott! I think the API would be a good approach to use in my case.
Would have been nice if there was a "accept solution" on the forum :)0
