Update a Ticket in Zendesk

Update a Ticket in Zendesk with Ticket ID

If you've created a Zendesk ticket in the flow, and you would like to update it, we can do that with the ticket ID

Alternatively, if the ticket was created outside of the flow, you can scroll down and see how to update the ticket via Email

  1. The first thing we'll need to do is save the ticket ID, from the 'Create Ticket' webhook

To do that, we'll press 'Test the webhook', then select '' from the purple drop down

Here we've saved it as @ticketid

  1. The next step, and most simple way to continue would be to copy the 'Create a ticket' webhook in order to avoid entering the information again

  1. From here we will change the url endpoint to the following PUT:{ticketid}

  1. The final step is to change the body of the request, this can be with text, or with any variable

To test this you will need to temporarily use an existing ticket id in the url, then change it back to the variable to use it in the flow
