Active webhook monitoring

Ensure your webhooks are being delivered on time.

What is active webhook monitoring?

Active webhook monitoring is an approach that measures the end-to-end timing of an event being processed by your system. We call an endpoint on your system (a trigger), and await the corresponding webhook. This accurately reflects the delays that might be experienced by your customers.

If a webhook is not received within a user-configurable amount of time, an alert is created for your team to quickly respond.

This goes beyond simple cron job and workflow monitoring that simply ensures an endpoint is hit every few minutes.
