Webhooks level up

Webhooks are by far our most widely adopted integration, but they’ve always been buried in a big list of external services. Today, we’re making some major improvements in the way you configure, customize, and debug your webhooks.

First, webhooks are a lot more prominent in your repository settings page.

You can now configure webhooks directly in your repository settings, instead of having to use the API. You can also choose specific events and a payload format (JSON!).

Once you’ve configured a hook, the new deliveries section helps you track, troubleshoot, and re-send a webhook event payload.

If you’ve never used webhooks, we’ve even got a brand new guide to help you get started. Happy integrating! :sparkles:
