Validate webhook action

This article describes how to validate webhook actions.

Use one of the following methods to verify and troubleshoot the new actions:

  • Vendor User Interface
    If the vendor provides a web user interface that allows you to monitor changes, submit an action to the target vendor endpoint and verify it on the target endpoint.
  • PutsReq Bucket
    Send a test request to a sample PutsReq bucket URL. After configuring the Action fields, go to the following URL to examine the request received using the PutsReq user interface.
    https://putsreq.com/>YOURBUCKETNAME/inspect
  • Trace
    Run the Trace tool and examine the action data. If you are using the template feature of this action, check the Template Variables JSON and Rendered Template: <template name>.
    When individual data items are added to a batch, trace displays batched actions first and then again after the batch is sent to the third party.

Individual data items added to a batch are not batched in Trace.

Multiple batching actions often correspond to a singe send-off action. There may be a considerable delay between the two
