Webhooks will be available in today's release of Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS! Webhooks allow communication between enterprise applications to send and receive automated messages from one another. This makes it easier to create automated workflows, enhance control over your analytics supply chain, and empower active intelligence through your organization.

What are webhooks? 

Webhooks are a common technique between applications to send and receive automated messages from one another. Webhooks trigger actions and events helping to accelerate business processes and increase productivity in your daily workflow. They act as a foundational component for interconnectivity across applications and make automating business processes easier to implement. 

With webhooks, organizations can support active intelligence by using them in the following examples:  

  • An application update can be designed to notify a group via Microsoft Teams.
  • A data source changes and fails to reload, ping a data governance lead on Slack.

Webhooks 1.0 in Qlik Sense 

The first release of webhooks supported within Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS will be user and app events. Developers can create workflows by integrating applications like Slack, Microsoft Teams, Workato, Twilio, any SaaS platform that supports webhooks, and Blendr – Qlik’s new application automation platform!

A few examples of events for webhooks include: 

  • App Data Updated 
  • App Reload Finished
  • And more! 

Qlik Sense Enterprise SaaS Professional users can configure webhooks through the Management console. Check out the video below to learn more about webhooks and creating Active Intelligence anywhere!

Great addition, thank you!
I've tried taking a look on QS' help, without luck: what is the difference between App Data Updated and App Reload Finished?

app.data.updated identifies simply that an app's data has been refreshed. app.reload.finished (ended) is a reload event. The payload of the reload event contains references to the different tables loaded into the data model of the app.
