For one of my side projects, I've got to forward all the incoming notifications from any app to a webhook endpoint.
Initially, I thought to build an Android app specific to that. However, after playing around with MacroDroid I was able to get it done almost instantly.
So what is MacroDroid?
It's a super-simple Android app that you can use to automate your workflow. You can think of it like an IFTTT or Zapier but as a simple yet powerful Android app.
Here is how to do it:
Step 1: Create a new trigger
- Create a new trigger and select Notification under "Device Events"
- Now, select Notification Recieved option
- Then, depending upon your choice, select either Select Application(s) or Any Application
- And then, configure it based on your condition and preference.
Step 2: Mapping the variable
With Set Variable under action, we can assign the fields that we want to send to the webhook.
Step 3: Make the HTTP Request (or whatever you want)
Once the variables are assigned, you need to send those variables as a payload to the API endpoint or webhooks (or whatever you want)
That's pretty much it.
