Webhooks for Magento 2
Note: This is alpha software and not to be used in production until v1.0.0
This module provides webhooks for Magento 2 events. More to come soon! Contributors welcome!
Install via composer
composer require sweettooth/magento2-module-webhook
SweetTooth_Webhook to your
return array (
// Bunch of other modules
'SweetTooth_Webhook' => 1,
Run database migrations
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
Available now - Customer updated - Customer deleted - Order updated - Order deleted - Product updated - Product deleted
TODO - Customer created - Order created - Product created - CRUD operations for other resources
Without async webhooks, this module is pretty much a no-go for production shops - the dependency on third party systems is just too risky to do syncronously. The best practice for performing tasks asynchronously is to queue it up on a memory store (redis, memcache, etc) and have a background worker pick up the job and perform it, meanwhile the syncronous request returns imediately. Since there's no native queueing for Magento 2, our best bet might be to use the database as a 'queue' ("Blasphemy!" you say. Chill, magento already does this in the newsletter module) then use the cron to pick up the jobs every minute.
Right now serializing the payload of the webhook is super basic, just calling
getData() on the model. This is all kinds of bad because it will expose sensitive information like password hashes and such. A better strategy would be to create a serializer for each resource. An even better strategy is if we could re-use the serializer for the REST API so our webhook data has an identical json structure to the API. Boom.
It would be really cool to make this module extendible so other modules could add events that can be webhook'd
This is a really legit use case. An app that has API access to a shop may want to register webhooks to receive CRUD events on specific resources that they would otherwise need to poll for every x hours. Both Shopify and Bigcommerce have this endpoint and it's lovely.
We should probably support XML someday. sigh
