The Rewatch API and webhooks are currently in private beta and are subject to change during the beta period. If you’d like to learn more about the beta, please contact your account manager or get in touch at support@rewatch.com.

Webhooks are a way for a web application to be alerted of activity on a Rewatch channel. By providing a URL to receive JSON payloads representing channel events, it’s possible to take action in response to that activity.

Read the webhooks overview for a general discussion of using webhooks with your Rewatch channel.

Note: Creating and configuring webhooks may only be done by channel administrators. Webhook events will contain information about channel resources such as collections and videos regardless of their visibility on the channel.

Webhook event types

There are a set of high-level event types that correspond to resource types in a Rewatch channel, and for each of those there are a set of actions that may be taken on those resources. The combination of those yields the set of events that trigger webhook deliveries.

The current event types and their actions are:

In the near future there will be events added for member and group actions.

The combination of event type and action is represented in the Rewatch-Hook-Delivery-Event header and the JSON payload event field in webhook delivery HTTP requests.

For example, deleting a collection from your channel will result in those fields being set to collection.deleted.

Example event payloads

video.addedToChannel

This event will fire whenever a video leaves the draft state on a channel, regardless of its visibility.
