Webhooks Overview

The Webhooks API allows you to subscribe to events happening in a vcita account with your integration installed. Rather than making an API call when an event happens in a connected account, vcita can send an HTTP request to an endpoint you configure.

To set up a webhook all you have to do is register a URL. That URL will accept data and can activate a workflow to turn the data into something useful. You can specify the situations in which vcita will deliver you the data.

Webhooks and APIs differ in how they make requests. For instance, APIs will place calls for data whether there’s been a data update response, or not. While webhooks receive calls through HTTP POSTs only when the system you’re hooked to has a data update.
