Use this plugin to create various integrations with your server – generate dynamic content or send data. To add an attribute/user_variable to the URL field just type variable within single curly brackets {} in the URL field, such as {first_name}. Most of the time this will be auto-done for you via the “Use User Variable” field within the form. Botsify makes a simple GET or POST query to your API, then renders the response straight to the user. You can use any content type header for this. If you are looking for an easy and fast way to setup your own endpoint for JSON plugin, check out this short tutorial. As told in this tutorial, you can use this JSON API with Stories, templates, scheduled messages or even with menu items and get started buttons Here are examples of JSON format to be used: Here is how you can send a text message:

Keep in mind that you can combine several messages in one answer by sending several dictionaries in the messages array. Quick Reply

{

  "text":  "testRedirectInQuickReply",

      "quick_replies": [

        {

          "content_type":"text",

          "title":"go",

          "payload":"1231414141"

        }

  ]

}

  Note: Quick replies can be used with template types of responses as well. So feel free to be creative.   Postback New request to your JSON API can be done after clicking on a button (both Quick Reply and regular buttons are supported).
