Changes since API version 2019-02-01

2019-08-15 - Headers renamed

We are deprecating the old headers, which means it is not a breaking change but it's recommended to update them as soon as possible.

  • X-Share-Webhook-Signature becomes X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Signature

  • X-Share-Webhook-Type becomes X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Type

Headers
Example
Headers

Key

Description

X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Signature

Verifies that the incoming requests are legitimate, you should hash the response body with the SHA-256 secret and verify that it matches the X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Signature header you receive in the request.

X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Type

Two types that describe the nature of the webhook:

  • WebhookConfirmation This type of message is sent when we are verifying your endpoint.

  • WebhookMessage

    This type of message is sent when we send a webhook to your endpoint.

X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Retries

How many times BuiltOn tried to send a webhook to your endpoint.

BuiltOn will try to send 5 times. After the limit is reached, the retrying process will stop.

Example
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Content-Type: application/json
X-BuiltOn-webhook-Type: WebhookMessage
X-BuiltOn-webhook-Signature: 02d522b33c34e0655e8a97c49b5d038a2abd93cb86f4608b9e7febe0e28acf64

Verify a Webhook

The Webhook has to be verified before related data on related Events are dispatched. The API tries to verify the endpoint when the Webhook is created. If the endpoint returns an HTTP status code 2XX then the Webhook is set to verified.

If an endpoint is updated, then the Webhook is not verified anymore. It is possible to manually try to verify the endpoint by doing the following request.
