urlBackgroundOptions not working


I’m having problems getting all the options in urlBackgroundOptions working. The HTTP method seems to work, but for the life of me I cannot seem to get headers or the httpBody working.

Here’s the format of the input JSON:

  "title": "Hello",
  "text": "Message",
  "actions": [
      "name": "Some Action",
      "url": "https://1e33-56-106-55-21.ngrok-free.app/foo",
      "urlBackgroundOptions": {
        "httpMethod": "POST",
        "httpHeaders": {
          "Content-Type": "application/json",
          "X-Auth-Token": "xxxxxxyyyyyyy"
        "httpBody": "{\"foo\":\"bar\"}"

and here’s the response I see:

  "method": "POST",
  "path": "/foo",
  "full_path": "/foo",
  "query_string": "",
  "headers": {
    "HTTP_HOST": "1e33-38-106-140-21.ngrok-free.app",
    "HTTP_USER_AGENT": "Pushcut/368 CFNetwork/1494.0.7 Darwin/23.4.0",
    "HTTP_ACCEPT": "*/*",
    "HTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING": "gzip, deflate, br",
    "HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE": "en-US,en;q=0.9",
    "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_HOST": "1e33-38-106-140-21.ngrok-free.app",
    "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO": "https",
    "HTTP_VERSION": "HTTP/1.1"
  "params": {
  "body": ""

If I create the action directly in pushcut itself, it all works, but I want my actions to be dynamically built, so that won’t work. My fallback is to have it call a Shortcut which also works, but that’s another component I’d rather not include if I don’t have to.


Sorry about this, that’s definitely strange. You say you aren’t creating the action directly in Pushcut: How are you creating the action? I’m guessing it’s through the API? Would you be able to share the API request that you make to send that notification?
