Event & Webhook Overview

Overview

Events and Webhooks are a core architecture feature of FusionAuth. This feature provides a publish-subscribe pattern to developers and integrators of FusionAuth. In this architecture pattern, the Webhook is the subscriber and FusionAuth is the publisher.

This system is designed to provide feedback to your system when events occur within FusionAuth. Events are sent via an HTTP POST using application/json data. This is the same style of API that the FusionAuth App uses to handle API requests from your application.

See Webhook APIs and Create a Webhook tutorial for additional information on defining and using the FusionAuth Webhook.
