Call a webhook with record ids

Please be sure of your agent type and version and pick the right documentation accordingly.

This is the documentation of the forest-express-sequelize and forest-express-mongoose Node.js agents that will soon reach end-of-support.

forest-express-sequelize v9 and forest-express-mongoose v9 are replaced by @forestadmin/agent v1.

Please check your agent type and version and read on or switch to the right documentation.

Call a n8n webhook

You need to declare the new action with its scope in the users.js model

// forest/users.js
const Liana = require('forest-express-sequelize');

Liana.collection('users', {
  actions: [
      name: 'Notify with slack',
      type: 'single',

Then implement the action as needed in the route route action:

// routes/users.js
const express = require('express');
const router = express.Router();
const Liana = require('forest-express-sequelize');
const models = require('../models');

const Liana = require('forest-express-sequelize');
const superagent = require('superagent');
  async (request, response) => {
    const { query, user } = request;
    const [userId] = await new RecordsGetter(

    try {
      await superagent
        .send({ userId });
      response.send({ success: 'Called webhook' });
    } catch (e) {
      return response
        .send({ error: `Failure calling webhook: ${e.message}` });

module.exports = router;
