Quick Start - Forwarding
How to start using Webhook Relay to forward webhooks
Webhook Relay provides public endpoints which can accept HTTP requests and then, based on user defined rules, forward them to either public or internal destinations.
Our service has a concept of bucket which is basically a grouping mechanism that enables you to accept webhooks on multiple endpoints and forward them to one or more destinations. Bucket inputs can be customised with dynamic responses and outputs can be configured to perform filtering and forward webhooks to both internal or public destinations:
Webhook routing
Based on your needs, there are multiple different ways to start forwarding. The easiest one for internal destinations is using the relay CLI directly:
1
relay forward -b my-bucket https://localhost:8080/webhooks

Option A: Using configuration helpers

We have a step-by-step configuration wizards that will help you:
Once configuration is created, you can always edit all details by visiting your buckets page. If your destination is internal, you will need to start the agent.

Option B: Configuring manually

A newly created bucket will have a default input. However, you will need to create an output destination.
Newly created bucket
To do that, click on Add More in the "Output Destinations" section:
Create an output
Set name, destination and output type, then click ‘create’:
creating a new output
All received webhooks will be forwarded to that destination. If you selected 'internal' network, you will need to start the relay agent as well:
1
relay forward --bucket new-bucket
Copied!
Example output:
1
relay forward --bucket new-bucket

What can be forwarded?

Currently Webhook Relay forwards:
  • Body (up to 3MB)
  • Headers
  • URL query, for example https://xyz.hooks.webhookrelay.com?foo=bar, will be forwarded to http://localhost:8080?foo=bar
  • Extra path that’s after your public input endpoints: https://xyz.hooks.webhookrelay.com/directory/foo will be forwarded to http://localhost:8080/directory/foo
Functions, when applied on Inputs can provide dynamic response. See functions documentation.
