A Webhook allows developers a way to deliver data in real time which makes these a great way for teams to observe changes that happen to content within a project. Traditional Webhooks, while efficient, can be harder to set up. Hygraph takes the hassle out of gaining visibility into important project-related tasks like Syncing data with an external PIM or search engine.

  • Hygraph is just so easy to use. Creating new data models and populating them for use on the front end is intuitive and the interface is very clean. The product is designed in a way that it's obvious they were thinking about their users.

  • Our team uses Hygraph to push breaking news stories to our project's webpage. The project is a part of a large non-profit initiative and the goal is to feature current content (news stories, celebrity endorsements). Authors are able to quickly add content to the CMS without sacrificing the high quality our readers expect.

A Webhook Trigger, or a predefined action that activates a Webhook, can be configured to listen to one or more content model, stage or action events. This gives developers and the teams they support full control over their content items as they are distributed across platforms and locations.

Hygraph Webhooks provide a method for observing changes to content within your project, allowing you to perform custom business logic whenever a change happens. With this feature, sign Webhook payloads with a custom secret key. These Webhook signatures provide an easy way to verify the origin of incoming Webhooks, preventing replay attacks and delivering stronger enterprise security.
