Using WebHook Relays to Translate Between Services

Tara Calihman - February 24, 2014

Launching… done, v7 http://uservoice-victorops-relay.herokuapp.com deployed to Heroku

Configuring The Relay from UserVoice

My server name there is http://uservoice-victorops-relay.herokuapp.com, so I’ll configure that in the UserVoice application.

Create a test ticket at UserVoice

The result? A notification from VictorOps that someone has posted a ticket to my UserVoice support queue.

WebHooks are such a powerful tool, allowing you to wire together products and create complex interactions – almost meta-programming. They don’t always fit together perfectly, but a simple relay like this gives DevOps engineers like you the ability to build the behavior that best suits your needs.
