Webhook Notifications not firing

Hello,

i was working on the webhook events on my sandbox account and had the http://webhookinbox.com configured as the endpoint to receive the webhook notifications, all was working great but today i was wrapping up the work and wanted to add the email notifications  that are sent against different events from the Authorize.net and tested by creating and cancelling a subscription on Authorize.net so that the webhook fires and i receive the notification in my inbox but it didnt happened, i created the subscription and cancelled again, still nothing came to my inbox then i looked into the docs to find if there is any logs for the webhook events and while i was doing it i suddenly received all of those webhooks instantly i though might be a glitch somewhere, so i created a subscription again to verify if all was going well but till now 1 hour passed and i havent received any notification in my inbox.

 

I looked here https://github.com/AuthorizeNet/webhooks-postman-collection/blob/master/webhooks.postman_collection.... and used POSTMAN to send a request to get all the notifications for the webhook on the URL https://apitest.authorize.net/rest/v1/notifications

which gave me a list of all the webhook notifications but i cant find my very recent event listed there i.e customer.subscription.created.

 

So I investigated those webhook notifications that were received in a bunch after the first attempt and looking into one of those last notfications link that is provided under the `_link` property like

 

 "self": {
      "href": "/rest/v1/notifications/35fbbc3f-30b1-4815-9cf2-89e18e272a88"
 }

the above showed me the following logs with the `retryLog` having message : "One or more errors occurred."

 

{
    "_links": {
        "self": {
            "href": "/rest/v1/notifications/35fbbc3f-30b1-4815-9cf2-89e18e272a88"
        }
    },
    "notificationId": "35fbbc3f-30b1-4815-9cf2-89e18e272a88",
    "deliveryStatus": "Delivered",
    "eventType": "net.authorize.customer.subscription.cancelled",
    "eventDate": "2018-12-18T09:54:25.217",
    "webhookId": "08637ba7-07a9-4e4d-9787-e68eaaa31ad8",
    "retryLog": {
        "logs": [
            {
                "retryDate": "2018-12-18T09:55:19.7034018Z",
                "message": "One or more errors occurred."
            },
            {
                "retryStage": 1,
                "retryCountInStage": 1,
                "retryDate": "2018-12-18T10:02:47.1317057Z",
                "message": "One or more errors occurred."
            }
        ]
    },
    "payload": {
        "name": "som",
        "amount": 10,
        "status": "canceled",
        "profile": {
            "customerProfileId": 1506165879,
            "customerPaymentProfileId": 1505505989,
            "customerShippingAddressId": 1505493431
        },
        "entityName": "subscription",
        "id": "5491561"
    }
}

Can someone tell me why is it acting weiredtoday it was all working seemlesly and the notifications were posted instantly to the target URL but it isnt happening now. and what are those errors about that are under the retry logs?

Re: Webhook Notifications not firing

You won’t get emails tied to webhooks. I don’t use the subscription function in any of my apps, but 

unless you get an email when a subscription event happens by default, you won’t get one from a web hook.  Those retry logs relate to redelivery attempts. Usually that means that your webserver didn’t respond on the first attempt. Authorize will retry multiple times using different intervals over a period of days. You could pull that notifications history and see what the initial failure was.

I wasnt saying the webhook event would be sending an email notification, that is my own custom code that would run on MY API ENDPOINT which is receiving the webhook event, and those glitches were temporary and it started working the next day.

 

Thanks for the reply @Renaissance

You bet. I was going to actually suggest you could write your own script.
