Webhooks are an easy way to receive push notifications in your app about new events that happen within Aikido.

How to set up

Webhooks can be set up by admins via the integration settings page and then clicking on 'Webhooks' at the bottom, or via this link.


Aikido will execute a POST request to the provided target URL for the configured events. The POST body of the request will look like this:

    "payload": {
        "issue_id": 1,
        "type": "open_source",
        "severity_score": 90,
        "severity": "critical",
        "status": "open"

event_type: the type of event (STRING)
created_at: a timestamp of when the event was created (INT)
dispatched_at: a timestamp of when the webhook request was dispatched (INT)

payload.issue_id: the ID of the issue (INT)
payload.type: issue type, can be one of 'open_source', 'leaked_secret', 'cloud', 'iac', 'sast', 'surface_monitoring', 'malware' (STRING)
