Today, we’re excited to announce the Webhooks Dashboard release, which is now available on PayPal Developer Portal. The dashboard comes with a rich feature set providing developers the necessary tools for easier integrations.

With this release, developers can now perform the following functions on the dashboard:

  1. Search Webhook events based on an application
  2. Resend a notification on a single click
  3. Access the payload on an event click
  4. Filter events based on a selected date range
  5. Robust pagination to simplify navigation across events

Search Webhook events based on an Application

Webhooks are configured for an application and the events are associated with them. You can now filter the Webhook events based on an application and view Webhook event details such as event type, event id, date, status, etc.

Additionally, you will be able to monitor the status of your notifications based on the state changes. For example, you can see the status of the “Payment authorization created” event highlighted in yellow depicting the status of the notification as pending.

Resend a notification on a single click

While you can always request to resend a Webhook notification anytime using an API call, you can now do the same in a single click by hitting the Resend button on dashboard.

Access the payload on an event click

With the Webhooks dashboard, clicking on any event will open a dialog box with the Webhook event payload, hence providing easy access to the event payload anytime.

Filter events based on a selected date range

Developers will now be able to filter the Webhook events based on a selected date range. Please note that the available search window for Webhook events is 30 days.

Robust pagination to simplify navigation across events

Pagination becomes a vital feature for simplified navigation across multiple pages, especially with large data sets. We enhanced the existing pagination infrastructure to provide better scalability and reliability across large data sets.
