Webhooks

Webhooks provide an easy and reliable way to configure the Apify platform to carry out an action when a certain system event occurs. For example, you can use webhooks to start another actor when an actor run finishes or fails.

To define a webhook one needs to select an event that triggers the webhook, from the available system events and provide an action to be executed after the event occurs. When the event occurs, the system executes the action.

Currently, the only available action is to send an HTTP POST request to a URL specified in the webhook.
