Webhook Listeners are groovy scripts which are executed when a specific event(s) are executed within FlexDeploy. Each Webhook Listener is associated with one or more event types and multiple Listeners can be listening to the same event. For example you could have one Listener that sends a Slack notification and another that sends an email for the ‘Workflow Completed’ event.

Webhook Listeners also allow you to filter which events that the listener will process by using groovy script. The groovy script will return true when the listener should process the event and false otherwise. You are able to use all of the Webhook Context Variables and Methods that can be used in the event listener groovy script. This allows the filter to be very robust and your listener to only process the exact events that you want. For example, you can specify that you want your workflow completed listener to only process a workflow that has failed a deployment on your Dev environment and ignore all other workflow events.
If the filter script has an error or doesn’t returns something other than a boolean value it will be treated as returning false and nothing will be allowed through the filter
