Webhook events

Events

At Moov, we generate an event when something happens in our system. When an event occurs, we record the relevant data. For example, when a customer is created, we generate an event called customer.created. The contents of an event object depend on its type.

Here’s a sample event payload, with customer.created as an example.

HTTP Delivery headers

Once a webhook event is sent to your endpoint, you will receive a delivery via HTTP POST with some unique headers. These headers are important for verifying that Moov (vs. a third party) sent the payload. For more information on verifying webhooks, see Check Webhook Signatures.

Here are the unique headers you can expect to see in a webhook event delivery.

Header Name Description
X-Signature Cryptographically generated hash to be checked against for security purposes
X-Timestamp Timestamp of the event delivery
X-Nonce One time use number for webhook signature verification
X-Webhook-ID Unique identifier for the delivery
