Handle Skills Payloads

Within the application or site that is set up as your invocation URL you will generally need to perform two tasks.

  • Handle the Skill payload - Every time a Box Skills detects a new file is uploaded, copied, or moved to a folder it sends a JSON notification to the invocation URL. This URL needs to be parsed.
  • Apply a Skill Card to a file - The metadata returned from the processing service will need to be stored back as metadata on the file that triggered the event.
