# Building a HTTP trigger
After you have setup your HTTP connection, you can now configure HTTP triggers.
The HTTP connector supports New Event via Polling. Each new/updated record will be processed as a trigger event. If there are more than 100 events within the poll interval, those above 100 may be dropped.
If your use-case requires you to respond immediately to trigger events and your app allows you to create webhooks, you can use a webhooks trigger from the Webhooks connector.
# New Event via polling
This trigger fetches events at each polling interval. Workato will make a
GET request to the URL that you provided. The corresponding data returned will be converted into useable datapills in subsequent actions.
New Event via Polling
|Event name||The name for this polled event.|
|URL||The HTTP endpoint that you are connecting to.|
|Request headers||Provide the HTTP request headers, if applicable.|
|Response content type||Select the expected response data type.|
|Response body example||Provide a sample of the response body. Ensure that this example follows the content type indicated.|
The output of this trigger depends on the response schema provided.
