Alternatively, you can choose to build and manage a webhook through the Webhooks API.

Callback (payload) URL

This is the URL of the server endpoint that will receive the webhook POST requests.

Content Type

The application/json content type will deliver the JSON payload directly as the body of the POST.

Verify token (secret)

Setting a secret allows you to ensure that POST requests sent to the payload URL are from Flipdish. When you set a secret you'll receive the X-Verify-Token header in the webhook POST request.

Events

Events are at the core of webhooks. Webhooks fire based on the occurance of events.

A full list of webhook events, and when they execute, can be found in the events page.
