Make-Formerly-Integromat-Secondary-Version-1024x346-_1_.png

Would you like to integrate an app with Brevo and automatically perform certain actions? An easy way to do it is to use one of the plugins or direct integrations available in our App Store.

If no integration is available or if the action you want to perform is not included in the integration, you can easily create a scenario through Make to connect your app with your Brevo account.

Good to know

  • This article provides general information about how to create a scenario in Make to integrate an app with Brevo. For more information about how to use Make and create scenarios, we recommend you check Make's documentation.
  • In Make, the Brevo app is free to all Brevo clients with up to 1,000 operations per month for free. If you require additional operations, you can check out their monthly subscriptions here.

Before you start

  • Create or log into your Make account.
  • Log into your Brevo account and retrieve your API v3 key. To learn how to retrieve your API v3 key in Brevo, check our dedicated article Create and manage your API keys.

Supported triggers and actions

To integrate two apps together, you need to set up scenarios on Make. A scenario is triggered by a specific event and then performs specific actions between the apps.

💡 Good to know

Part 1: Set up the trigger

You first need to choose the trigger that should start your scenario and connect Make to your trigger app to retrieve your data:

  1. From Make, click + Create a new scenario.

  5. Click Ok.

Step 3: Test your scenario

Step 4: Schedule your scenario (optional)

💡 Good to know
Modules with the ⚡ lightning icon are instant triggers, which do not need scheduling as they transfer data immediately as it arrives.

Now that you've tested it, select how often you want your scenario to run. By default, it is set to run every 15 minutes.

  1. Click the 🕑 clock icon next to your trigger to schedule your scenario.
  2. From the Run scenario dropdown, select at which interval the scenario should run (at regular intervals, only once, every day, etc.).
  3. Optional: Click Add item under Advanced scheduling to define specific time intervals from specific items.
  4. Optional: Click Show advanced settings to select a start and end time for your scenario.

  5. Click Ok.

Step 5: Activate your scenario

If you're happy with your scenario and its scheduling options, click the SCHEDULING toggle button at the bottom-left side to activate it.

That's it! Now your scenario between Brevo and your other app will run according to the schedule you selected.
