What are Webhooks and why should I use them?

Webhooks tell you that something has happened or notify you of an event. These notifications can include a wide variety of events, such as new logins, logouts, or cancelled accounts. Webhooks allow you to set up notifications that will send a message when the specific event occurs. They're a simple way for software to "talk" to each other and be notified automatically when something new happens. In many cases, you'll need to know how to use Webhooks if you want to automatically push data from one app to another.

 

To get started, head over the Webhooks page and click on the + New Webhook button.

 

Then, you'll need to provide an endpoint and select the type of Trigger you want to send the Webhook.

The current possible trigger types are as follows (more to be released): 

  • New member

  • Member updated 

  • Membership cancelled 

  • Member deleted

This is great for integrating with services like :

  • Automate

  • Microsoft Flow

  • Workato

  • IFTTT

  • PieSync

  • Tray.io

  • Zeleo

  • Parabola

  • Actiondesk

  • Coda

  • Zenaton

  • And more!

    What is your webhook retry policy?

    I mean, if for some reason (network error, server is down...) a 200 response is not returned to the webhook, how many times will Memberstack retry the webhook call? In what time intervals?
