We have prepared a significant update for Worksection. We’ll be sharing all the new features with you in the following posts. Stay tuned; it will be interesting and useful.
In this article, we’re going to talk about Webhooks.
How Webhooks work
When there’s a change in your account, the information is automatically sent to the web address of your choice. This way, you can receive updates without delay.
Previously, to receive data from Worksection, you had to constantly request the server through the API, which led to delays.
Webhooks with a simple example
Without Webhooks, you would have to constantly go to your mailbox and check if a new email has arrived. Imagine that a Webhook is like a postman who brings you a letter when it arrives at the post office.
Simply set up Webhook to send you project changes automatically.
Create a Webhook
To create a Webhook, go to 1 Account Settings and navigate to the 2 API section. In the 3 Webhooks field, click 4 Create.
You can learn more about Webhooks and their additional settings in the FAQ section.
A webhook can have three statuses, which you will see in the list of added webhooks:
- Gray — “Disabled”
- Green — “Working”
- Orange — “Working, but has failed attempts”
Attention! If 10 errors occur, the Webhook will be automatically disabled.
