Webhooks notify and help you collect information about the key events that happen in your Crowdin Enterprise project, like completed translations or proofreading. After you configure a webhook for the project, Crowdin Enterprise will start sending POST or GET requests with data to the webhook URL via HTTP.
Only admins and group/project managers can register a webhook.
You can add webhooks to build integrations with the services or with your backend. For example:
You can configure webhooks for the following types of events:
File fully translated
File fully reviewed
Project fully translated
Project fully reviewed
Exported translation updated – final translation of a string is updated
Source string added
Source string updated
Source string deleted
Suggested translation added – a string in the project is translated
Suggested translation updated – a translation for a string in the project is updated
Suggested translation deleted – one of the translations is deleted
Suggested translation approved – a translation for a string is approved
Suggested translation disapproved – approval for a previously added translation is removed
Task status changed
To configure webhooks in Crowdin Enterprise, go to the Project home and select Resources > Webhooks on the left. Click Create to start configuring your new webhook.
You will need to provide the following information to register a webhook:
Optionally, you can add special headers to your webhook. They can be used for additional security, as an authorization method, and more. For example, if you add headers, your webhook endpoint can check them to ensure that information is coming from Crowdin Enterprise.
When adding a webhook, you can test how your application will react on that call.
Each event type in Crowdin Enterprise has a specific payload format with the relevant event information. You can customize the webhook payload to add and organize the elements the way your system requires.
To check the event’s possible variables, hover over the Info icon in the right upper corner of the Payload section.
With the help of Crowdin Enterprise webhooks, you can send the notifications about pre-configured event types directly to a specific Slack channel.
To configure the webhooks’ sending to Slack, you’d need to create a simple Slack app. Read more about Sending messages to Slack using Incoming Webhooks.
As soon as you created and configured your Slack app, you’ll have a Webhook URL that should be used for the Webhooks configuration in your Crowdin Enterprise project.
You can access the list of all existing webhooks within a specific project. You will be able to edit or delete webhooks right from the list of webhooks displayed.
After the events are triggered, you will be able to review the activity of each webhook separately. Use the filter to review all or only unsuccessful webhook notifications.
