Step 4: Provide webhook URL

You need to provide a webhook URL, to which BoldSign will notify when an event happens in your document. HTTPS URLs are required.

Step 4.1: URL verification

Once you have provided an URL, it needs to be verified to successfully register as a valid webhook. To verify a webhook simplify click the verify button beside the URL textbox.

URL verification step 1

When you click the “Verify” button, a HTTP POST request will be sent your URL with below JSON payload. Note the “eventType” property value is “Verification”.

    "event": {
        "id": "7c872a5b-5fd5-4f1c-9765-92530a83a8b9",
        "created": 1617180024,
        "eventType": "Verification",
        "clientId": "17c97f7a-efdd-4fb5-b486-fef97b6544a7",
        "environment": "Test"

NOTE: Your endpoint needs to respond with HTTP status code 200 OK within 10 seconds to be verified successfully. When the URL is successfully verified, you should see the acknowledgement like below in the modal.

URL verification step 2

You can specify your actual endpoint URL instead of ngrok created URL if you have already setup your endpoint to receive callbacks.

Step 5: Events
