To handle webhooks in OctoberCMS, you can follow these steps:

  1. Create a new plugin or use an existing one for your webhook integration.
  2. Define a webhook route in your plugin's Plugin.php file. This will specify the URL where the webhook will be received. For example, you can use the registerApiRoutes method to define a route:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
public function registerApiRoutes()
{
    return [
        'webhook-url' => [
            'controller' => 'AcmeMyPluginControllersWebhookController@index',
            'middleware' => ['web', 'api'],
        ],
    ];
}


  1. Create a new controller or use an existing one to handle the webhook. In the example above, the index method of the WebhookController will handle the webhook:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12

namespace AcmeMyPluginControllers;

use IlluminateRoutingController;
use IlluminateSupportFacadesRequest;

class WebhookController extends Controller
{
    public function index()
    {
        $payload = Request::json()->all();

        // Process the webhook payload

        return response('Webhook received', 200);
    }
}


  1. Inside the index method of the controller, you can access the webhook payload using the Request facade. You can then process the payload as required for your application.
  2. You can also define middleware for your webhook route if needed. In the example above, both the web and api middleware are applied to the route.


Additionally, you may want to consider using the Laravel events system or creating a custom event to further process the webhook payload. This can help decouple your webhook handling logic and make it more extensible.


Remember to test your webhook integration thoroughly by sending test payloads to the webhook URL and verifying that the expected actions are being performed.
