Last updated: Mar 22, 2022
Hi everyone, Im new to webhooks and am struggling to make a webhook to work with sanity and discord. Here is an image on how i configured my webhook inside of my sanity.io account. I’m not sure what I am doing wrong here i check the webhook log inside in sanity and get this log:
{"id":"atm-26f8IwI5sj8vuLk7Kxd2BwTNLAw","projectId":"1234567","inProgress":false,"duration":126,"createdAt":"2022-03-20T19:06:43.856Z","updatedAt":"2022-03-20T19:06:43.856Z","messageId":"msg-26f8Iy5zvkQYhjE2nZMgXU3VbkB","hookId":"VeIn6ryKBtnmVljy","isFailure":true,"failureReason":"other","resultCode":400,"resultBody":"{\"message\": \"Cannot send an empty message\", \"code\": 50006}"}]

You’re getting that error because you’ve left the
Projection
field blank, resulting in an empty post body to Discord.
I don’t know what type of payload Discord expects so you may need something in between to convert your Sanity webhook to something Discord understands.

thank you for taking the time to reply🙏 I believe the type of payload discord expects is json. I already made a webhook to work with github and discord using a json payload. If i’m understanding correctly from the sanity docs, sanity formats their payload as an associative array. You mention that I may have to possibly convert this payload?

Yeah it’s likely JSON but it’ll also need data in a specific shape, eg:
{
  "channelId": 12345
  "message": "This is a message for Discord."
}
So that data either needs to be constructed in the
Projection
field in the Sanity admin otherwise you’ll need need another method to format it.

I am trying to find what you are calling the Projection field in the Sanity admin. I can’t seem to find it. I recall when I made a webhook with github and discord, I was able to select json in github’s webhook, but don’t seem to see sanity’s webhook providing that configuration option.

How did I miss that 😅 thank you so much for your help I really appreciate it 🙏

Wanted to follow up, I figured it out finally how to fix the empty message error from reading this stack overflow article https://stackoverflow.com/questions/52565121/discord-webhook-can-not-send-empty-message . I entered this in the Projection
{"content": "Test"}
apparently sanity required the word “content” keyword for it to know that is the “message”. Thank you again for your help earlier pointing me in the right direction 🙌 🙏
