[Solved] Email based workflow trigger?


#1

I have a thing that is reporting geolocation over email over a very low bandwidth satellite link.

Struggling re: how to integrate that gelocation report into a Losant workflow. Guidance appreciated. Cheers


#2

Losant doesn’t currently have native support for email triggers, however Mailgun would be a really good service to connect email to Losant. Mailgun can expose an email address to send email to, then using their service you can forward that message over a webhook to Losant.

Give that a try. If you’re stuck we can provide some instructions with more details.

That’s the start I’m looking for. Cheers


#4

We use SMS to send GPS and status via Twilio which calls into Losant workflow via a webhook.
This works well.

Email would be a very similar approach.

zapier and context.io are other api providers that support inbound email to webhooks.

Configured a Mailgun Route to match an address on my MailGun sandbox domain, with forward to a Losant Webhook trigger node. Works fine.
