This method is used to create a new webhook or update an existing one.

To update an existing webhook, pass the name of the webhook to update, along with any relevant parameters.

Passing a new name with an existing url will return an error. To rename a webhook, first delete it, then create a new one.



Note: If you plan on integrating Gigya's Accounts API, we highly recommend reading the Registration-as-a-Service Guide. Registration-as-a-Service (RaaS) is a premium platform that requires separate activation. If RaaS is not part of your site package, please contact Gigya by filling in a support form through the Console. You can access the support page by clicking Support on the upper menu after logging into the Gigya Console.

urlstringThe callback URL to which webhook notifications will be delivered. This must be unique per site and HTTPS.

  • accountLoggedIn
  • accountDeleted

Pass multiple event types separated by commas.

The name of the webhook. This can be up to 100 characters long and must be unique per site.
activeBooleanIndicates whether the current webhook is active. When set to false, notifications will not be sent to this webhook.
signingUserKeystringThe userKey whose secret is used to sign the notification. Leave this parameter blank to sign notifications using the partner secret.
format string Determines the format of the response. The options are:
  • json (default)
  • jsonp - if the format is jsonp then you are required to define a callback method (see parameter below).
callback string This parameter is required only when the format parameter is set to jsonp (see above). In such cases this parameter should define the name of the callback method to be called in the response, along with the jsonp response data.
httpStatusCodes Boolean The default value of this parameter is false, which means that the HTTP status code in Gigya's response is always 200 (OK), even if an error occurs. The error code and message is given within the response data (see below). If this parameter is set to true, the HTTP status code in Gigya's response would reflect an error, if one occurred.
