Webhook

Use Webhooks to get notified when events happen.

note

The webhook integration is not enabled by default.

For more details on how to enable it, refer to our Configuration Section.

The outbound webhook integration enables you to programmatically participate in conversations by sending messages or reacting to them. Here's a common integration pattern:

You must de-duplicate messages on arrival as the webhook does not guarantee events uniqueness. Your webhook also has to respond to every message with a status code of 200.

Subscribing#

POST /webhooks.subscribe

Subscribes the webhook for the first time or update its parameters.
