Web Alerts

A web alert, also known as webhook, is an automated notification sent from the API server when triggered by a specific action that occurs in your portfolio. You can configure the actions that trigger the alerts to notify you of any event that’s important to your business model. The Web Alerts page contains information about notifications associated with your account and allows you to create new alerts or edit existing ones.

Note: By default, all Web Alerts are disabled. You must enable alerts by using the Add Alert feature on this page.

Tip: To learn more about web alerts, see the following guides.

Navigate to the Web Alerts page by clicking Web Alerts in the Admin category of the left hand navigation panel.
