Creating A Webhook Connection On Hookdeck

Hookdeck offers a complete webhook infrastructure to help tech teams instantly and reliably process, manage and troubleshoot their incoming webhooks. Practically that means it's an infrastructure that scales seamlessly and does all the heavy lifting – error handling, retries, alerting, logging, and queuing.

I use Hookdeck to manage my webhook connections with various third-party services.
In this quick guide, I will show you how to set up a webhook connection using Hookdeck via the dashboard.

Getting Started

In this section, I'll show you step by step how to create a webhook connection using Hookdeck.
The first step in creating a webhook connection using Hookdeck is to sign in to your Hookdeck account. Once signed in, navigate to the Hookdeck dashboard and select the connections tab.
To create a new webhook connection, click the create button at the top of the connections page.

Next, fill the three required fields on the pop-up menu — Source, Destination & Ruleset. Hookdeck gives you the option to either select previous values or to create entirely new ones.

After creating a webhook connection, Hookdeck provides you a unique URL. You should copy and use it as the URL endpoint when registering a webhook with your API provider. Once set up, the API provider will send their webhooks to this destination.

Conclusion

In this tutorial, we have learned how to set up a webhook connection on Hookdeck. With our current setup, we can deploy webhook integrations in production without having to worry about reliability. Hookdeck gives us full visibility and control over our webhooks.
