Concatenating Text Variables

  • Updated
  • Coming soon!
  • Zingtree has built a handy webhook you can use to combine several text (string) variables into a single variable. You just need to add a new Webhook, and then install it into the node where you want the operation to take place. Here's how to set it up:

    Step 1: Add the Webhook to your Organization

    1. Go to Account, My Apps.
    2. Click on Add Webhook.
    3. Give the Webhook a name (like "string catenator"), and enter this for the webhook URL:
      https://zingtree.com/apps/webhook/lib/stringcat.php

     The end result looks like this:

     

    Step 2: Call the webhook from your tree

    Here's an examp[le to create a variable named url by catenating a variable called domain with some text:

    1. Open your tree, and edit the node where you want the age calculated.
    2. Under the Apps / Webhooks tab, click Add App / Webhook.
    3. Pick the Webhook you added previously (String Catenator, for example).
    4. In the Message Data area, enter something like this:
      &result=url&string1=#domain#&string2=/faq.php

      The result= part names the new variable (url). The string1=, string2= are other variables or text used to make the final variable. #domain# inserts the value of a variable named domain.

    5. Save the changes to the node.


    Your edits should look something like this:

     

    Now just use #‌url# anywhere you want to show the new variable.

    Note: You can include up to 5 strings to make one catenated string. The string parameters may need to be URL Encoded.
