Webhooks are an HTTP/HTTPS callback request sent to a desired URL in response to some event, which could be pushing code to a repository or a comment being posted in an online community. A Webhook integration can be used to generate external events in Metricly’s Event Explorer, meaning you could create policies based on the content of those messages.




 If you need to disable an existing Webhook integration or view the unique API key assigned to your account, navigate to the Integrations page under the user account drop-down menu and click the integration designated as Webhook under the Integration column.

Setting up a Webhook integration is a one-step process:

  1. Copy the unique API key from the Webhook integration in your account.

Step 1: Copy the API key from the Webhook integration in your account

  1. From the top navigation menu, select Integrations.
  2. Select the Webhook card. The name should be already populated, and Data Collection should be enabled. A unique API key for your account has already been generated.
  3. Select an element from your inventory to associate the Webhook events with.
  4. Post to Metricly’s API using the URL included in the instructions. See the Webhook API documentation for more information.
