Access A Web Request-Triggered Workflow From The Frontend

This example showcases a workflow triggered by a web request that can be called from your site’s frontend using JavaScript. While it doesn’t perform any specific actions, it handles the request and outputs a JSON response: { "status": "ok" }. This basic setup provides a foundation for more complex interactions, enabling you to build custom functionalities that seamlessly integrate with your site’s frontend.

    if (!response.ok) {
      throw new Error('Network response was not ok ' + response.statusText);
    return response.json(); // Parse JSON from the response
