Examples of data payloads can be found here. If you would only like to receive specific fields out of the ones available, you may also select only the ones relevant to your needs and omit the rest. The following is an example of the data payload you may expect from an activity coming from Terra.

Receiving data for your MyFitness Pal integration - WEBHOOKS

Whenever data become available from a MyFitness Pal device, they will be streamed to you, via our webhooks. When setting up your Terra account, you will be prompted to provide a callback URL, to which Terra may send PUSH data using POST requests.

Your MyFitness Pal integration with Terra supports instant delivery of data without needing to periodically request it yourself. MyFitness Pal notifies Terra whenever new data is available, following which we POST the normalized data to your webhook.
