/{customerId}/webhooks/subscriptions/{subscriptionId}/events/{eventId}/history

Enables you to return the delivery history for a specific event. The delivery history reports each delivery attempt, when that attempt was made, whether or not that attempt succeeded, and, in the case of delivery failures, why that attempt did not succeed.

This endpoint supports the following methods:

  • GET

GET

Description

Returns the event history for the specified webhooks event. From the time an event occurs to the time a notification of that event is successfully delivered to the listener endpoint, the event passes through several states. These states, which are recorded in a relational database table and can be retrieved by using the /{eventId}/history endpoint, are listed in the following table:

Event State

Description

awaiting-executing

The event is ready for delivery. When the delivery process actually begins, the event state changes to executing.

executing

The event is being delivered.

By design, events are not delivered if a webhook subscription is disabled. So what happens if an event is marked as executing(but hasn’t been delivered yet) at the very moment that a subscription is disabled? In that case, the process continues and the event will be delivered (and marked as success). However, if delivery fails the process ends: delivery will not be retried if the subscription has been disabled.

success

The event was successfully delivered to the listener endpoint.

failure

The event could not be delivered. With two exceptions, events are not marked as failure until they have reached the number of allowed retries (see the retry parameter for more information).

The two exceptions? Delivery attempts that result in an HTTPS status code of 1xx or 3xx are automatically marked as failures and are not retried.

Note that failure events are not immediately discarded; instead, all events (including failure events) are maintained in the Identity Cloud event store for 7 days. That means that you have one full week in which to use the /{eventId}/redeliver endpoint to schedule redelivery of the event. After those 7 days, the event is removed from the event store and is no longer accessible.

retry

The event could not be delivered and has been scheduled for redelivery. The delivery schedule for event notifications works like this:

  • Webhooks v3 attempts to deliver the event.
  • If delivery fails, the system waits 3 seconds and then tries a second time to deliver the event.
  • If the second delivery attempt fails, the system waits 30 seconds and tries again.
  • If the third delivery attempt fails, the system waits 5 minutes and tries again .
  • If the fourth delivery attempt fails, the system waits 1 hour and tries again.
  • If the fifth delivery attempt fails, the system waits 24 hours and tries again.

If the sixth delivery attempt fails the event is marked as failureand no further delivery attempts are scheduled. In that case, you have 7 days in which to use the /{eventId}/redeliver endpoint to schedule redelivery of the event. After those 7 days, the event is removed from the event store and is longer accessible.

At a minimum, each event passes through the following three states:

  1. awaiting-executing
  2. executing
  3. success

Request Parameters

No additional parameters are required to call this endpoint.

Authentication

This endpoint requires token-based authentication. To obtain an access token, you must use a confidential client (using the client ID as the username and the client secret as the password) to access the /{customer_id}}/login/token endpoint. The access token returned from that endpoint is then used in the Authorization header of your API call. For example, if you get back the access token 03v-eeodppPrrHXXIx56pRLyDBaOldDxqEwI59MFCFGVuSkLRapzgmfwmEHyKWle then your Authorization header will look like this when using Curl:

-H 'Authorization: Bearer 03v-eeodppPrrHXXIx56pRLyDBaOldDxqEwI59MFCFGVuSkLRapzgmfwmEHyKWle'

In Postman, set the Authorization Type to Bearer and use the access token as the value of the Token field.

Sample Request (curl)
