About Webhooks

A webhook is a user-defined HTTP callback. It is a mechanism that sends real-time information to any third-party app or service.

Thus, webhook allows you to keep your third-party application in sync with your Contentstack account. Using webhooks, you can specify a URL to which you would like Contentstack to post data when an event occurs in your stack.

For example,

  • Sending a marketing email to your subscribers whenever you publish any new blog post from your stack
  • Automatically adding tags to an image after publishing it
  • Creating redirects for old URL whenever you change the entry’s URL to a new one
  • Notifying your users on social platforms about your newly released content.

Contentstack provides a Webhook Integrations guide on how you can use webhooks for a variety of purposes. This can help you to integrate webhooks with any third-party applications for creating custom solutions.

You can browse through the following topics, mentioned in the “More Articles” section, to learn which actions you can perform on a webhook.
