Store JSON data on link in Make

I have no clue if this is possible so I thought I’d ask here.

I’m trying to make a shortcut on iOS that would have a dynamic list of my current projects. I have a scenario that updates the list of current projects I was wondering if there was a way to use Data Store to keep a record of the 10 latest projects that then could be accessed via a JSON link.

In iOS Shortcuts, I can use an HTTP request to get the list, I’m just trying to find a place that can update and host the list of projects.

Hey @cre8iongroup ,

If I understand correctly you want to use an URL from make to provide JSON data which you stored in a data store before. You can do this by using the “webhook” module.
Simply do the following:

  • Store any kind of JSON data in a data store in scenario #1
  • Make a new scenario, and use the “Custom webhook” as trigger
  • Now search records in your data store to find the earlier saved JSON
  • Finally finish the scenario with a “Custom webhook response” module, and in the body use the JSON you retrieved from the data store.

Hope this helps you. If you have more questions let me know.

Thanks Bjorn. I was missing the trigger because in my mind I wanted to have it all in an existing scenario that already had a trigger.

Essentially I’m loading the data into the data store. Then the webhook trigger asks for the data from the data store and then the webhook response returns the data. But I can use the data store to keep the information from the other scenario stored.

I also looked into doing this with a google sheets script webapp but I like the idea of having things in Make and more graphical. With google I was still going to have to figure out how to only return 10 items vs the entire list.

Thank you for your help!
