Webhooks

Abowire can send Webhook events to your application on specific actions.

You must specify the event you would like to be notified on and a public URL that Abowire can reach. You can add custom query parameters to the request as well, such as a secret token to validate the request, etc.

The webhook object

The webhook object represents a Webhook definition in Abowire.

{
"id": string,
"eventArn": string,
"url": string,
"status": "enabled" | "disabled"
}

The webhook event

{
"id": string, // Webhook UUID
"eventArn": string, // Event ARN
"component": string, // Abowire module responsible for the event
"action": string, // Action that was triggered
"userId": string, // User ID who caused the event to trigger
"timestamp": Date, // Timestamp of the event
"origin": string, // Origin of the event
"destination": string, // Destination URL of the event
"payload": any // Object that was affected
}

Error Handling

The destination server must respond with HTTP status code 200 or to be considered a valid request.

Abowire will try to deliver the Webhook event 3 times, with a 5, 10 and 15 second delay between retries (respectively).
