Send to Webhook serializes the entities retrieved from the saved query supplied as a trigger (or entities selected in the asset table) as JSON. This JSON data will be sent to a configured webhook. When used with a saved query as a trigger, only the fields configured in the saved query are added to the JSON.

To configure the Send to Webhook action, from the Action Library, click Notify, and then click Send to Webhook.
