Webhook

The webhook notification agent enables you to send a custom JSON payload to any endpoint for specific notification events.

Configuration

The URL you would like to post notifications to. Your JSON will be sent as the body of the request.

Authorization Header (optional)

This is typically not needed. Please refer to your webhook provider's documentation for details.
This value will be sent as an Authorization HTTP header.

  • Request Approved
