To create tasks in ClickUp for Squadcast Incidents with the help of Outgoing Webhooks

Create a Task in ClickUp via Webhook Template

Follow the below steps to configure the “ClickUp - Create Task” action via webhooks.
We will be utilizing ClickUp's Rest APIs to Create Task

Create a Key to authenticate ClickUp Rest API

ClickUp's APIs can be authenticated in different ways, check them out here. We will be using Personal Access Token (PAT) to authenticate their API
  1. 1.
    Login to your ClickUp account -> Go to Your Profile at the left bottom-> Apps -> Under API Token -> Generate
  2. 2.
    Copy the Token to Create Cards

Get List ID to access the API

You need Team ID and Space ID to get the List ID
Here we have used Postman to get those IDs
  1. 1.
    Open a new tab in Postman
  2. 2.
    Paste the below curl in the URL space -> Send
  3. 3.
    Copy the Space ID that you get as a response
curl -i -X GET \
'https://api.clickup.com/api/v2/team/{team_id}/space?archived=false' \
-H 'Authorization: YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
Note:
Replace {team_id} with your team id (workspace id) in the URL. You can get the team ID on the browser URL. When you log in to your ClickUp account that number you see on your browser URL is the team ID
Under Headers -> Authorization: paste the API Key that you copied from the previous step
  1. 4.
    Open a new tab in Postman
  2. 5.
    Paste the below curl in the URL space -> Send
  3. 6.
    Copy the List ID that you get as a response
curl -i -X GET \
'https://api.clickup.com/api/v2/space/{space_id}/folder?archived=false' \
-H 'Authorization: YOUR_API_KEY_HERE'
Note:
Replace {space_id} with your space id copied from the previous step.
Under Headers -> Authorization: paste the API Key that you copied from the previous step

Note:
Select this option only if you want to create ClickUp tasks manually on-demand. If you want a ticket, created automatically when certain conditions are met, please choose Automatic webhooks.

    Automatic Webhook: Automatically trigger Webhooks when the configured conditions match. To set up Automatic Webhook Configurations:

    2. 2.
      Triggers: Select the following Trigger events (conditions) for which the Webhook will be triggered:

        Incident Triggered (This will create a ClickUp task whenever a new incident gets triggered in Squadcast)
    3. 3.
      Filters: You can apply filters on top of events, based on Teams, Services, Alert Sources, and Tags, by having an individual expression or a combination of expressions/expression groups.
Applying filters will trigger the webhook and create ClickUp tasks only for events that match the filter.
Click Next: Configure Payload, and navigate to the next step.
  1. 5.
    Configure Payload: Select the pre-configured template for ClickUp - Create Task. You can also test the Webhook by clicking the Test Webhook on the bottom right.
