Get real-time updates on the status of jobs and connections with Finch Webhooks. It's the next step in effortless API management.
We're excited to share that Finch now supports real-time webhooks for all customers on our scale plan. Finch Webhooks help you monitor connections and sync jobs, and notify you when data has changed. This helps you keep your applications up to date with the freshest employment data available.
Finch offers 3 types of webhooks, account update events, job completion events, and data change events.
We designed Finch Webhooks to empower our developers to build seamless and secure applications. With webhooks, there’s no need to make repeat data requests to find out what data has changed. Easily configure webhooks in the Dashboard, and start receiving notifications in real time.
Check out the demo below to learn how to set up your first webhook.
To set up a new webhook, simply register an endpoint in the Dashboard, and use our documentation to understand the structure of each event type.
Webhooks make it easier to get notified of updates instantly. Once you’ve set up your webhooks, you’re ready to receive updates in real time.
Scalable and secure
As your business grows, so do your needs. Fortunately, Finch webhooks are built to scale—so whether you're handling ten employer connections or ten thousand, performance will remain consistent and reliable. Our webhooks are also signed by Finch so you can verify that the data you're receiving is coming from us.
