Set up webhooks

Learn how to set up and configure a webhook.

In order to send a webhook request when an automation rule is triggered, add a "trigger webhook" action to the rule and enter the URL for the webhook in the URL field. When the rule is triggered, a POST request will be sent to the given URL with JSON-encoded data about the event.

The JSON will contain the following keys:




Name of the repository which was scanned



Name of the branch which was scanned



Name of the commit which was scanned



Link to a page, where scan results for this commit are available



Unique identifier for the rule that was triggered



Link to a page in, where the triggered rule can be viewed or edited



Array of objects, where each element describes a combination of a vulnerability and a dependency which caused the rule to trigger

Each element of triggeredFor will contain the following keys:




Name of the dependency which caused the rule to trigger



Array of licenses affecting the dependency, each encoded as a string using the same name as shown in the license view



Link to the dependency on


object / null

Information about the vulnerability which caused the rule to trigger, or null if the rule doesn't have any conditions related to vulnerabilities


Name of the vulnerability that caused the rule to trigger


Link to the vulnerability on


number / null

CVSS2 score for the vulnerability, or null if not available


number / null

CVSS3 score for the vulnerability, or null if not available

Sending a sample request

A sample webhook request can be sent to the specified URL by clicking Send sample request. The triggeredFor array will be populated using up to three vulnerabilities that were found the last time this repository was scanned. Note that these vulnerabilities may not necessarily fulfill the conditions specified in the rule.

Verification Secret

To ensure that a webhook request was sent by Debricked, a key can be specified in the verification secret field. When a verification secret is specified, webhook requests made by this rule will include the header X-Debricked-Signature, containing an SHA256-HMAC signature generated using the webhook payload and the verification secret.

  10. If needed, click on Send sample request to test if everything works correctly

  11. Click on Generate rule and Save

Set up notifications in Slack using the webhook
