Managing webhooks

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.

(info) 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

  1. Log in as a user with the JIRA Administrators global permission.
  2. Choose > System. Select Advanced > Webhooks to open the Webhooks page, which shows a list of all existing webhooks.
  3. 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.
