What is a Webhook?
A webhook is an automatic action that takes place when a certain event occurs. This is typically the act of pushing data from Impexium to an outside program. For example, when a customer registers for a course in Impexium, a webhook can push that customer’s data to an outside program, such as an LMS (learning management system).
When working with webhooks, you may encounter the following terms:
Type: The type of event that triggers the Web Hook. It can be an Event Registration, Account Creation, or the purchase of a specific product.
Secret: This is a security tool for the vendor to whom the webhook is sent.
JSON Payload: Displays an example of what information will be sent over, which is dictated by the Type (see above).
URI: This is the URI provided by the vendor receiving the web hook via their Listener Endpoint.
Description: A description of the webhook’s purpose.
