Once the event occurs, the json represtantion of you data is sent to the specified url. In the header it is specified which event was launched.
Each event will trigger a request like this:
x-listen-event: contain the name of the event launched
x-apikey: contain a random generated key for autentication porpouse
x-signature: contain the data signature created with OPENSSL_ALGO_SHA1; public key is store in website settings
- body contains two main parts:
dataObject: json representation of your dataObject
argumentrs: exception code and message throws if a failure occurs
To ensure the authenticity and security of the information transmitted, in the header there are a randomly generated api-key, and a signature generated through a pair of keys (public / private), stored in the Pimcore website setting. These are created automatically when the bundle is installed, but you can use your own.
To run the tests you don't need to create any webhooks or classes, these will be created automatically, you just have to initialize the testURL attribute with a valid url.
