Webhooks: What Are Webhooks And How Set Them Up?

Last Updated: Aug 22 2016 02:11 pm UTC

Using Webhooks your server is notified about activities with your Mailigen contact lists. You can configure what type of event updates you would like to receive at your Mailigen account's Webhooks page.


To learn more about how to use Weebhooks please read our documentation page.


Steps to create Webhooks:


1. Go to the Webhooks page in your Mailigen account.


2. Click on the button ''Create A New Webhook''
3. A new pop-up window will appear. There you have to enter the following:

  • Title of the Webhook - use an action or word, which you will understand later
  • Choose a List from the dropdown - you will get notifications about this list only


Note: Every Webhook is bound to only one list. In case you have more than one list, you will need to create more than one webhook.  

  • Enter a URL, which you have created. This is a specific place on your server for Webhook messages.
  • Add a Security Key (Optional) - You can enter a key (up to 100 characters). By using this specific key your Webhook calls will be signed. This way (by checking the key) you can validate yourself that the message sent via Webhook is trusted and originates from Mailigen. 
  • Define the involved Parties and set the needed Triggers

The section "Send updates made by" defines the involved party. You can choose any combination of the parties.
''Trigger on'' is an action made by a previously checked party.

Click the ''Save'' button

When all necessary checkboxes have been chosen and saved, you will start to receive notifications to the upper mentioned URL.
