Webhooks provide an additional channel to import data into your Sift’s computation context. A typical use case of this includes:

  • Exporting data from the frontend to the backend, e.g. user settings.
  • Creating arbitrary interactions in your Sift that produce data you wish to compute on e.g. read receipts or calendaring interactions.
  • Integration with reference data e.g. importing organisation data for backend compute.
  • Integrating Red Sift with other messaging mediums.
  • Integrating Red Sift with other web services directly or via adaptor services such as IFTTT or Zapier.

For security purposes, Redsift ONLY provides and provisions HTTPS endpoints for created webhooks.
