Trigger Flow using Webhook and Voice Call

Kaleyra’s flow builder facilitates inbound and outbound calling capabilities for incoming and outgoing voice calls.

The flow can be triggered by enabling:

Trigger Flow using Webhook

You can use webhook to trigger flow one-way (such as SMS, API, and other offline widgets where customers are not required to be on the other side of the call to respond immediately similar to a voice call). Webhook can be enabled from the Start widget and a webhook URL is generated post flow publish which has to be used to trigger the flow. Use the generated URL to trigger the flow which will execute all the widgets inside.

📘

Note:

Flows triggered using Webhook execute only the offline widgets (that is SMS, API, Jump, and, Date and time widgets). All the other widgets in the flow will be skipped.

The flow can be triggered using Webhook in two steps:

  1. Generating the Webhook URL through Kaleyra.
  2. Triggering Flow using Webhook URL through HTTP Call.

Trigger Flow using Voice Call

You can trigger the flow using a Voice call through an active subscribed number.
