Creating a new Outbound Webhook Subscription via the UI
Administration of webhooks requires System Admin access. The Webhook administration page can be accessed by clicking the Admin icon , followed by clicking Webhooks in the Extensions section.
- On the Webhooks administration page, click the Add button at the top right.
- In the Subscription tab of the slideout window, there are 3 required fields:
- URL - the url to which event information will be posted
- From - the asset type (Story, etc.) to be monitored
- Event Type - the event type that will trigger the webhook

- Note that you can configure more than one Trigger Event in a single webhook subscription.
- Authorization Header and Secret fields allow you to optionally configure your subscription with additional security (see the webhooks API documentation).
