Often times, customers approach me with questions around AtScale’s ability to integrate into the customer’s operational stack. Today, I want to highlight a component of AtScale’s Development Extensions called Webhooks.
A webhook (also called a web callback or HTTP push API) is a way for an application to provide other applications with real-time information. A webhook delivers data to other applications as certain events occur, meaning you get data immediately as opposed to a REST API which you would need to poll for data very frequently in order to get it close to real-time. This makes webhooks much more efficient for both provider and consumer.
