Creating webhooks

You can create webhooks to subscribe to specific events that occur on Shopwaive.

You can create a webhook to subscribe to events that occur in a specific organization. You must be an organization owner to create webhooks in that organization.

You can use the Shopwaive web interface or the REST API to create an organization webhook.

  1. Contact our team to let us know of your interest in Webhooks. We'll provide your team developer access to the Webhooks web interface after review.

  2. In the upper-right corner of any page of Shopwaive, click your initial avatar.

  3. Click Settings.

  4. Scroll to Webhooks.

  5. Click Add webhook.

  6. Under "Payload URL", type the URL where you'd like to receive payloads.

  7. Optionally, under "Secret", type a string to use as a secret key. You should choose a random string of text with high entropy. You can use the webhook secret to limit incoming requests to only those originating from Shopwaive. For more information, see "Validating webhook deliveries."

  8. Under "Which events would you like to trigger this webhook?", select the types of webhooks you'd like to recieve. You should only subscribe to the webhook events that you need.

  9. To make the webhook active immediately after adding the configuration, select Active.

  10. Click Add webhook.

After you create a new webhook, Shopwaive will send you a simple ping event to let you know you've set up the webhook correctly. For more information, see "Webhook events and payloads."
