This guide explains how our Zapier WebHook can help companies when they run a bounty program at HackenProof.

Please note! It’s Zapier Webhook integration, not Zappier App

As you know, HackenProof uses a ticket-based system that has different stages of reports processing.

Once you connect your bug bounty program to your Zapier account, the bot will send notifications about the following:

  • new reports (that includes the Program name, Report title, Report severity, and Report URL)

Step 1. Generate your ZapierHook URL

  • Navigate to the Zapier dashboard
  • Create a new Zap
  • Choose Trigger: Webhooks by Zapier
  • Choose the Event type: Catch Hook
  • Press the Continue button:
  • Pick off a Child Key and press Continue. Here you can name it as you wish.
  • Copy the ZapierHook URL:

Step 2. Add the copied ZapierHook URL to HackenProof:

  • Navigate to your Program integration section and choose Zapier:
  • Paste your copied ZapierHook URL and press the Connect button.
  • Press the Test WebHook button to test the connection (it will send the latest report’ data to Zapier)
  • Back to Zapier and press Test Trigger:
  • As a result, you will see a data record. Press Continue with selected record.

Step 3. Connect your Google Chat App

  • in this sample, we use Google Chat. Before starting working with Google Chat, you need to:
    • Connect your Google Chat account in the Zapier App: Navigate to your Zapier Account and make sure you have the necessary connected app
  • Set up Zapier Bot in the Google Chat space:
  • Choose the Hangouts Chat Room where you want the Message to be shown. The Zapier Bot must be added to the room and be configured with the “allowzaps” command.
  • Now navigate to your Zapier account to continue creating ZAP:
  • find and add Google Chat
  • chose event type Create Message and press the Continue button
  • Now specify data about your Google Chat (data in the screenshot is just an example). You can add a Description that can include a few fields at the same time. Also, you can add some pre-description for each field to understand it in Jira later:
    • Program name:
    • Report ID:
    • Report URL:
    • Report Severity:
    • Report Status:
  • Now you can Test it.
  • if everything works for you, Publish it
  • Check your Google Chat space:
