Webhook Verification

Webhook Verification

Our servers will dispatch a highly configurable HTTP request to your application endpoint which is mentioned in Webhooks section, containing many details about the messaging or any other communication channel.

Validation Key

On creating a webhook, we request you to verify the webhook. This is a security measure that will be useful for both of us.

It makes sure the URL you entered actually points to a valid webhook abd able to receive messages from our servers.

We send an initial HTTP request to the webhook URL you provided. It contains a query parameter called token i.e validation key you entered while creating the webhook.

You need send a response with status code 200 and a JSON object in the request body that contains a validation key.

Ex: While creating webhook validation key given as ‘9012XX’ for the url yourdomain.com/receive/callback

curl -X POST \
  'yourdomain.com/receive/callback?token=9012XX' \
  -H 'authorization: Bearer 1233XXX'
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
    "validation_key": "9012XXXX",
    "challenge": "a234qwe",

Expected Response From Customer End

  "challenge": "a234qwe"

Example Request with secret

Additionally, you can configure a secret for each webhook. The secret will be sent as a Bearer token in the Authorization header of the webhook requests. This acts as a simple password system where you may check any requests for the correct token.

Ex: While creating webhook secret created as ‘1233XXXX’ for the url yourdomain.com/receive/callback

curl -X GET \
  'yourdomain.com/receive/callback' \
  -H 'authorization: Bearer 1233XXX' 

After Verification

After successful verification you are able to receive DLR updates to your webhook as mentioned in below format.

curl -X POST \ 
  https://www.domain.com/ack/receive \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  -d '{
