Webhook migration guide

The Webhook configuration API is available for SMS and for Chat Apps.

This allows you to manage your webhooks and to receive the object documented here such as your Delivery Receipts and Inbound Messages.

These Configuration API and object are different from the deprecated Wavecell versions.
This means that you might need to migrate to the new version, which is the goal of this guide.

The main difference is the new API doesn't have webhook types, as the objects structure now contains namespace and eventType.



1. Check which version you are on

The easiest way to check if you have any old webhook setup is to insert new record using the new API at your account level.
You can do this using this Webhook Configuration API

curl --request POST \
     --url https://sms.8x8.com/api/v1/accounts/{mySubAccountId}/webhooks \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer {yourApiKey}' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --data '
[
     {
          "enabled": true,
          "subAccountId": "*",
          "url": "http://example.com"
     }
]
'

If this doesn't return an error, you are all set and can focus on using the new API.

If you get an error like this, then you need to migrate from the old version:

🚧

Unable to setup the webhook of the new format, while the webhook with an old format exists for this subaccount. Please delete the current webhook first and try again. Existing webhook details: Type = MO, SubAccountId: mySubAccountId_hq, Version = V1, Url = http://example.com




2. Delete old webhook

If the step #1 returned you an error, you will need to use the old API to delete a webhook.
In the example above, your subaccount is mySubAccountId_hq and already has an old webhook setup.

To delete it, you can use the old API, for example:

curl --request DELETE \
  --url https://api.wavecell.com/config/v1/webhook \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer {yourApiKey}' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '[{"subAccountId":"mySubAccountId_hq","type":"*"}'

If you want to delete all your old webhook at once, you can do this:

curl --request DELETE \
  --url https://api.wavecell.com/config/v1/webhook \
  --header 'authorization: Bearer {yourApiKey}' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data '[{"subAccountId":"*","type":"*"}]'




3. Add new webhook

Now that you have delete your old webhook, or at least some, we can insert new ones.
For example for a specific subaccount:

curl --request POST \
     --url https://sms.8x8.com/api/v1/accounts/sfdsfsfsfs/webhooks \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer {yourApiKey}' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --data '
[
     {
          "enabled": true,
          "subAccountId": "mySubAccountId_hq",
          "url": "http://example.com"
     }
]
'

Or for all your subaccounts:

curl --request POST \
     --url https://sms.8x8.com/api/v1/accounts/sfdsfsfsfs/webhooks \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer {yourApiKey}' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --data '
[
     {
          "enabled": true,
          "subAccountId": "*",
          "url": "http://example.com"
     }
]
'
