Monitoring blockchain activity improves both security and control over your assets by notifying you when funds are sent or received, or specific transactions occur on-chain. Through the Overledger Zapier integration, users can easily combine our webhook API with other Zapier actions – such as Gmail, Slack, and WhatsApp – to receive notifications whenever the monitored actions are activated.
How to set up your first Overledger zap
Firstly, users must set up an account for a free trial of Overledger Platform. You will not need to submit payment details. Once the account is live, users should log in to Zapier using their Overledger client ID and secret key to power up the Zap.
By using the Overledger trigger in Zapier called “New Account Event”, users can subscribe to a specific DLT address, and whenever the specified address is involved in a transaction, the Zap process will begin automatically and deliver a notification via the chosen messaging service.
Once the trigger is received in the Zap, users can perform subsequent actions using any of the thousands of existing actions available in the Zapier ecosystem, including all of the Overledger API actions.
What else can you do?
You can also use the “New Contract Event” to trigger an event whenever a smart contract emits an event. This is a useful security feature to monitor whenever certain events occur, such as a change of ownership or the minting of new assets.
Overledger also provides the ability to read data from smart contracts. Using the Zapier integration, users can combine this ability with the thousands of other Zapier actions and triggers, as well as the previously mentioned triggers, to create a powerful application that is both activated and powered by DLT activity and data.
Combining Overledger and Zapier removes the need to host and maintain costly systems and, in minutes, create what would typically be a long-term development task. These two systems replace the need to host and maintain API services, databases and DLT nodes.
