Phraseanet Documentation


Each OAuth2 client application can receive information from Phraseanet through Webhooks. Its purpose is to send HTTP requests with the POST verb to a given URL when an event occurs in Phraseanet. These Webhooks can be used to perform specific actions in client application such as sending emails, running updates, notifiying of new flows...etc. Webhooks extend functionalities of the client application.


A webhook can be configured to trigger one or more events. The client application must support the listening to these events.


Phraseanet trigger webhooks only when a new entry is created in a RSS feed. For instant, It is not possible to configure the type of event to trigger. But we stand prepared for this possibility in the near future.
