ShotGrid Webhooks + Zapier workflow - 2022

I created an article in 2017 SG Webhooks + Zapier Webhooks + Send Email. Now, there are some updates on both ShotGrid and Zapier. Create this article to address the different.

The workflow uses ShotGrid Webhooks and REST API

Setup in ShotGrid

ShotGrid Webhooks setup doesn’t have any change. Please follow SG Webhooks + Zapier Webhooks + Send Email - Setup Shotgun Webhooks.

Let’s focus on the different.
When ShotGrid migrate to Autodesk Identity, there are two different account.

  • ShotGrid/RV/Create/Toolkit account. This is Autodesk account. User can mange password in https://profile.autodesk.com

  • Python API/Rest API human user. This is legacy ShotGrid user. User need to create PAT. And manage user name and password in Account Settings - Security

  • Try to avoid to use html characters (%, # …) in legacy password. Zapier won’t escape those characters. (Maybe there is trick. But I don’t know)

In this workflow, we need the second one Python API/Rest API human user. When legacy user/password created. Highly recommend to test with PostMan to test. If PostMan could pass the test, the account will be working for Zapier.

Zapier

We will only show the first four steps
