Sets the script to call when request was received.
For server, please use WebHook.Check in a looping script to check regularly for new requests.

If you use AutoAnswer and you don't keep connection open, you can check for new requests once a minute with a scheduled script.

With plugin version 6.0 or newer the script name can be a script ID number. In that case the plugin queries the script name for the given script ID. This allows to call scripts by ID and avoid problems if scripts are later renamed.

Notice: FileMaker 19.2 adds a fmplugin extended privileges. If you have such an extended privileges to allow the plugin to trigger scripts, you need to grant permissions for it. If such a privilege is not defined, the plugin is allowed to trigger scripts. See FileMaker product documentation for details.

Set Variable [ $r ; Value: MBS("WebHook.SetScript"; $$WebHooks; Get(FileName); "WebHookReceived") ]
