A webhook is a method for sending event notifications from one application to other applications. When something happens in a source system (indicated by an event), the webhook is triggered and an event notification is transmitted via HTTPS to a specific URL. The URL usually indicates the destination system that processes the data in the POST request.
The UP42 webhooks can be generated to alert developers whenever a running job changes the task status or a new data order is finalized. These webhooks can be a real time-saver for developers who want to focus on investigating all the failed tasks or download assets from all the successful orders.
In this section, you will learn how to view events and easily create your own webhook by using the API or Console.
This feature is recommended for users with basic programming skills.
