Webhooks

To add and manage webhooks at an organization level, navigate to your Profile → Webhooks, or you can go directly to the page at this URL when logged in: https://app.flowplayer.com/organization/webhooks.

 

Webhooks Page

 

Whenever an event occurs in Flowplayer, it can be reported via a POST https request to your designated URL. You can build one or multiple webhooks for an organization, depending on the kind of events you want to track and on the conditions you want to set up.

In a single webhook configuration, you are able track multiple types of events and create compound conditions. It is possible to create a configuration triggered only by certain event types, but with no other compound conditions.

 

Add new webhook

 

If you are new to webhooks, check out this comprehensive guide to working with webhooks.

Verifying Webhooks

To verify webhook requests, generate a HMAC-SHA256 hexdigest of the request body using the organization Webhooks Secret Key (will be set in the UI) as a secret, then compare it with the hexdigest we sent in the request header X-FP-Webhook-Signature-Hmac-Sha-256. That way, you will be sure Flowplayer sent the webhook notification.

 

Add webhooks secret key

 

If no Webhooks Secret Key is saved, then no events will be triggered for your organization.
