Webhooks are a key component of building event-driven Web applications, and they’re also supported in the various Rev AI APIs. They provide a simple, efficient and asynchronous approach to manage requests submitted through our APIs.

Here’s how it works:

    1. An application submits a job to a Rev AI API for processing, supplying a webhook URL in the callback_url parameter.
    2. Once job processing is complete, the API sends an HTTP POST message to the webhook URL containing the results of processing.
    3. The webhook URL handler receives the HTTP POST request, parses the request body and implements further application-specific business logic as needed. This could be sending an email, updating a database record or even invoking another webhook.

The following diagram briefly explains the sequence of events:
