Export to webhook (Beta)


This feature is currently in beta. Beta features are subject to quick, iterative changes. As a result, this document may not reflect the most current version. In order to access this feature please place a request with your customer success manager or reach out to the support chat to have it enabled for your organization.

This feature does not currently support export to authenticated endpoints.

Sigma webhook exports allow you to send data to your own webhook endpoint or to other applications such as Marketo, Segment, or Airtable, using a webhook. You can export your workbook data on an as-needed basis or create one or more schedules for recurring exports. Each schedule can support multiple endpoints and send conditions.
