How can I anonymize contact data?

Splash supports the action to anonymize contact data using incoming webhooks. In this article, we'll discuss how this can be done using a tool call Postman.

Postman is an API development tool that can be used to make API calls to any number of systems out there, including Splash. As a heads up, enabling this webhook requires set-up in both Splash and Postman. 

Let's get started by setting this up in Splash first! 

In Splash:

1. From Events Dashboard go to the left side menu and click on the “Integrations” tab.

2. Click on “New Integration” and choose “Incoming Webhook."

3. Select the webhook action “Anonymize:"

4. Splash will generate a unique webhook URL and sample payload with an integration_hash:

5. Click on the Save at the bottom right. Then toggle the integration ON in the top right.

Now that we've completed set-up in Splash, let's move on to Postman!

In Postman:

1. Open Postman. 

2. In the top right corner, select New (request).

3. Select method POST:

6. Click Send in the top right and Splash will return a success response as shown below.

Once set-up is completed, you'll see your guests' contact information anonymized in your guest list!
