Webhooks

Webhook integrations for receiving vote data


Webhooks

Instead of requesting our API to see the who has and has not voted for your bot, you can now use webhooks! Webhooks will send a POST request to a URL or a Discord Webhook of your choice when your bot has been voted for.


Custom Webhooks

For Users with a Custom Webhook Server you can start by setting up your webhook URL in the edit form of your bot on our site, it can be found at https://infinitybotlist.com/bots/:botID/edit under the Custom Webhook Url section of the edit form. Once you've entered the URL you want the webhook to be sent to and provide a secret, you're all set! If you need help setting up custom webhooks inside of your bot or web server don't be afraid to ask in our discord server in the „Äčapi-support channel.


Discord Webhooks

Start by setting up your webhook URL in the edit form of your bot on our site, it can be found at https://infinitybotlist.com/bots/:botID/edit under the Webhook Url section of the edit form. Once you've entered the URL you want the webhook to be sent to, you're all set! If you need help setting up webhooks inside of your bot don't be afraid to ask in our discord server in the „Äčapi-support channel.


Security

  1. On the edit page you can see another input for Secret or Secret Auth. Here you can provide a shared secret that you can check for on the server side.
  2. To verify requests are coming from us, look for the value in the Authorization header and make sure it is the same as the value you provided in the form.

Acknowledgement

  • Webhooks sent by infinitybotlist.com must be acknowledged with a 2XX status response (like 200) in order to be considered successful.
  • Unsuccessful webhooks will trigger a retry.

Official infinitybotlist.com libraries will be setup to acknowledge webhooks automatically in the near future.


Timeouts

Responses to webhooks must be returned within 5 seconds, otherwise they are considered a timeout and will be queued for a retry (if available).


Retrial

  • Webhook requests that time out or return a 5XX status response (like 500) will be retried up to 10 times.
  • Errors resulting with status 4XX (like 404, 403 or 400) will not be retried as these are considered user errors.
