Web Hooks are a great way to integrate Hornbill with other applications that are accessible over the internet. Web Hooks can send information from Hornbill to another application as soon as a record is updated, rather than relying on scheduled imports or the continually polling for data. A web hook is the opposite to an API call, a web hook is a call over HTTP from your Hornbill instance to a web endpoint of your choosing. Most application actions on a Hornbill instance can trigger an action-specific event when an action is performed. Hornbill can be configured to call to a web end point passing the action-specific data to the web service being invoked. This is a very powerful mechanism that enables true, near real-time integration with other business systems.

  • Event driven integration from Hornbill to an external source
  • Send data over HTTP to a specified web endpoint
