Hello @Owen_Kavanagh,

The article you have linked references the ability that users, with an instant setup (Cloud), have to create Actions directly from the UI as they do not have access to the agent. You can find out more about it in this section of the user guide. I do understand that the article could be confusing if you were not aware of this subtlety, we will update it as to clarify this point.

On your forest-express-sequelize agent, you would have to declare smart actions in your code as you have done up to now. You could make it so that your agent calls n8n webhooks.

Best regards,
