Webhooks are user-defined HTTP POST callbacks. They provide a lightweight mechanism for letting remote applications receive push notifications from JIRA, without requiring polling. For example, you may want any changes in JIRA bugs to be pushed to a test management system, so that they can be retested.
Please read the JIRA Webhooks page (JIRA developer documentation) for detailed information on how to configure JIRA webhooks, including a description of the events, how to register a webhook via the REST API, examples, and more. This page only contains instructions on how to use the Webhooks user interface in the JIRA administration console.

Managing webhooks in JIRA
- Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators global permission.
Choose > System. Select Advanced > Webhooks to open the Webhooks page, which shows a list of all existing webhooks.
- Here's a few tips on using this page:
- Click the summary of the webhook in the left 'Webhooks' column to display the details of the webhook. You can edit, delete and disable it via the details panel.
- Deleting a webhook removes it permanently. If you just want to prevent it from firing, disable the webhook instead.
