How to use webhook ?

edited April 2018 in Developers
Hi their,

I've tried to use webhooks to send SMS with twilio to present the Alphanumeric ID instead of a mobile number that doesn't erally exist.
I'm able to send correctly a SMS with webhook but not dynamicly. In other hands I am not able to retreive the data that where posted by checkfront backend.

Could you please just help to read data in PHP posted by checkfront ?

I've tried XML, JSON and x-form...

so my last code is :
$startdate= $_GET["start_date"];
$sku = $_GET["sku"];
$status = $_GET["status"];
$textSMS= $startdate . "-" . $sku . "-" .$status;

require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';
$sid = "bla bla"; // Your Account SID from
$token = "blabla"; // Your Auth Token from

$client = new Twilio\Rest\Client($sid, $token);
$message = $client->messages->create(
  'field to get from checkfront', // Text this number
    'MessagingServiceSid' => "bla bla", // From a valid Twilio number
    'body' => $textSMS));

print $message->sid;


If I specify my mobile number I receive : "---"...

thank you for helping.


  • Hello,

    Thank you for using our forums!

    In order to correctly access the data in the response, it may help to see how it is actually formatted. You could try using the developer console to see the full response of your query. 

    To access the console, go to Manage > Developer > Console. Try typing in a query, such as 'booking/{booking_ID}' (where '{booking_ID}' is the ID of one of your bookings).

    Doing this will let you see how the response is formatted and therefore, how to access the data. For example, most of the information you need will be in the 'booking' array. So, your code should look more like this:

    $startdate = $_GET["booking"]["start_date"];

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions!

    All the best,

    @Florent looking to review the data sent from Checkfront before written out a bunch of code? Try using a webhook parsing service, I have been using along with a few others to model the data I'd like to use. (example webhook data below)

    When a booking status changes it sounds like you would like to review the items node and compare between old and new.

  • To set up a webhook, go to the settings page of your repository or organization. From there, click Webhooks, then Add webhook. Alternatively, you can choose to build and manage a webhook through the Webhooks API. Webhooks require a few configuration options before you can make use of them.
