- Login to SendGrid and go to Settings > Mail Settings. Create an Event Webhook. Follow the steps mentioned here.
- Paste the Status Webhook URL copied in Step 1.
Send additional parameters to SendGrid
Raven will send the fields present in the Email template to SendGrid by default. Additionally, you can send “cc”, “bcc”, “From Name”, “Reply-to” fields in the Send Event API. This will override the fields added in the Integration. Please check our Override doc here.
You can control access to SendGrid by specifying Raven’s IP address, or make sure Raven’s IP addresses are not blocked. Please follow the SendGrid guide here.
