Webhook Source integration with RudderStack
Send customer event data from Webhook-supported sources to your destinations via RudderStack
RudderStack enables you to add any source that supports a webhook and use it to send events. RudderStack receives the data based on the settings made in the source, creates the payload, and routes it to the specified destination.
By adding Webhook as a source in the RudderStack dashboard, you can:
- Ingest your customer event data and route it to your preferred destination platforms
- Automatically send updates to actions configured in the source
- Transform the event payload into a destination-specific format using RudderStack's User Transformations feature
What you can do with Webhooks

Facilitate integrating different applications or third-party APIs
Avoid constant polling from the client-side application

What is the difference between API and webhook?
For most APIs, there is a request followed by a response. No request is required for a webhook, and it sends the data when it's available.
What is a webhook, and how does it work?
Webhooks, also called HTTP push APIs, enable apps to provide other applications with real-time information. They have a message (or payload) sent to a unique URL (the app's phone number or address). To use a webhook, you need to register a URL with the company providing the service. The URL is a location within your application that accepts data and works with it.
