Step 2: Exploring the Picnie Dashboard

Once logged in, familiarize yourself with the Picnie dashboard. Our integration begins by setting up a webhook. To do this, locate the "Webhooks" option in the left sidebar menu.

Step 3: Understanding Webhooks

Webhooks in Picnie serve as notification systems. When specific events occur within Picnie, they trigger HTTP POST requests to predefined URLs in other applications. These external applications process the data contained in the webhook payload and take actions accordingly.

Step 8: Mapping Data

The Picnie webhook response includes three parameters: Error, Message, and URL. An Error value of 0 indicates that the API is functioning correctly, and the URL field contains the generated image URL.
