Rather than polling the Truework API for changes, you can arrange for us to
POST request to a URL you provide whenever certain events occur.
There are a few important things to note:
- Truework will only send webhook requests over HTTPS.
- Each webhook instance you create is associated with a token. This token is included in all requests made by that hook.
- Tokens can be retrieved from the webhooks section of your API settings.
- You should check the
X-Truework-Tokenheader included with each webhook request and reject any request whose token does not correspond to the one shown for that hook on the settings page.
Anatomy of a Webhook
Webhook requests always have the following fields:
|hook||Metadata about the webhook|
|data||[many]||A payload specific to the event type|
|event||string||A unique string which identifies the event which triggered this hook|
|target||string||The URL to which the hook's payload is sent|
Fired when one of your Verification requests changes.
|state||The new state of the verification request|
|metadata||JSON||Custom metadata belonging to the verification request|
