Real-Time application monitoring Webhooks

Valerio Barbera

Hi, I’m Valerio, software engineer, founder and CTO at Inspector.

Inspector’s integration capabilities just got significantly better in the last few months. We are delighted to announce that Inspector Webhooks has been officially released.

What is a Webhook?

In general, a webhook is a way for an application to deliver notifications to a specific URI based on some trigger. Inspector send notifications to your webhook URI every time an error is detected inside your application or when a new transaction happen.

The payload of the webhook will contains all the details to investigate the event. So, your application can respond accordingly when a new exception is detected.

Why would you use Webhook notification channels?

Talking with our customers we discovered a bunch of different scenarios where webhooks would be really useful. The most common use cases include:

  • Delivery events into a variety of internal systems to trigger additional actions on your end (such as update user information in your CRM);
  • Delivery events directly to your customers through a custom UI to cut down on complaints;
  • Automatically create a ticket in your internal ticket system.

To get started using webhooks in your application, check out the short video tutorial below and let us know if you have any feedback:
