/{customerId}/webhooks/ subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/ events

Important. This endpoint is designed for testing and troubleshooting; it's not designed as an alternate way to monitor and download webhook events. That's the job of your listener endpoint.



Enables you to view all of your events in the Webhooks v3 event store; this includes both the events that have been delivered to your listener endpoint and the events that could not be delivered to your listener endpoint. 

This endpoint supports the following methods:

  • GET


GET

Description

Returns event notifications for the specified webhooks subscription. Keep in mind that this endpoint (like the other /events endpoints) works against the Identity Cloud event store and not against your organization’s webhooks database. 

Base URL

The base URL for this endpoint is your Identity Cloud API URL, including the appropriate region. For example, if you are in the US region, then your base URL will look like this:

https://v1.api.us.janrain.com

If you are in the Australian (AU) region your base URL will look like this:

https://v1.api.au.janrain.com 

URL path parameters

Parameter

Type

Required

Description

{customerId}  

UUID

Yes

Unique identifier of the organization (customer) associated with the webhooks subscription whose events are being returned. For example:

9bc867ed-1f10-420f-8d90-398fde4e4779

{subscriptionId}

UUID

Yes

Unique identifier of the webhooks subscription whose events are being returned. For example:

454fe969-1909-4e93-b552-674d47eafdb0

Query Parameters

The following query parameters can also be used with the /events endpoint:

Parameter

Type

Required

Description

page

integer


No

Specifies the page number of the API response to be returned. (API responses are divided into pages to limit bandwidth usage and to allow data to be returned faster.) If this parameter is not specified, then page 1 of the API response is returned. If there are additional pages to the response, the page number of the next page is included in the _links section of the response. For example:

"next": {"href": "/e0a70b4f-1eef-4856-bcdb-f050fee66aae/webhooks
/subscriptions/a6de662c-e93b-4041-96f0-283214de75b6/events
?page=2"}

To see the next set of results in the preceding example, make a second API call, this time including the page parameter and setting the value to 1.  If next does not appear in the _links section of the API response that means that there are no more pages to be returned.

Similarly, a _prev link point indicates the previous page in the response:

"prev": {"href": "/e0a70b4f-1eef-4856-bcdb-f050fee66aae/webhooks
/subscriptions/a6de662c-e93b-4041-96f0-283214de75b6/events
?page=4"}

limit

integer

No

Specifies the maximum number of pages to be returned. If this parameter is omitted then all pages are returned.

statestring
No
Enables you to limit returned data to events assigned one of the following states:

  • awaiting-retry 
  • awaiting-scheduling 
  • executing 
  • failure 
  • success

Note that you can only specify a single state when using this parameter. If you specify multiple states (for example, if you try to return awaiting-retry and awaiting-scheduling events, your API call fails with an error similar to this:

{
    "type": "/validation-error",
    "status": 400,
    "title": "Bad Request",
    "invalid-url-query-params": [
        {
            "name": "state",
            "reason": "state must be one of: [awaiting-retry 
awaiting-scheduling executing failure success]"
        }
    ]
}

Authentication

This endpoint requires token-based authentication. To obtain an access token, you must use a configuration client (using the client ID as the username and the client secret as the password) to access the /{customerId}/login/token endpoint. The access token returned from that endpoint is then used in the Authorization header of your API call. For example, if you get back the access token 03v-eeodppPrrHXXIx56pRLyDBaOldDxqEwI59MFCFGVuSkLRapzgmfwmEHyKWle then your Authorization header will look like this when using Curl:

-H 'Authorization: Bearer 03v-eeodppPrrHXXIx56pRLyDBaOldDxqEwI59MFCFGVuSkLRapzgmfwmEHyKWle'

In Postman, set the Authorization Type to Bearer and use the access token as the value of the Token field.

Sample Request (curl): Return All Events

The following command returns all the event notifications for the webhooks subscription with the subscription ID 454fe969-1909-4e93-b552-674d47eafdb0:

  -H 'Authorization: Bearer Xk7EzdpGq5GPQcsxCWM2SxdlwU_iTsA4i2Px4TEzBrfLIvddjnDVBJxjPDuCARHH'

Sample Request (curl): Return Only Failure Events

The following command returns only those events where the state property is set to failure:

curl -X GET \
  https://v1.api.us.janrain.com/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/webhooks/subscriptions/454fe969-1909-4e93-b552-674d47eafdb0/events?state=failure \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer Xk7EzdpGq5GPQcsxCWM2SxdlwU_iTsA4i2Px4TEzBrfLIvddjnDVBJxjPDuCARHH'

Sample Request (curl): Return a Single Page of Event Datat

The following command returns page 3 of the API response:

curl -X GET \
  https://v1.api.us.janrain.com/00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000/webhooks/subscriptions/454fe969-1909-4e93-b552-674d47eafdb0/events?page=3 \
