About webhooks in KWS

KWS use webhooks to notify your system of important service events.

The Parent Verification service webhook

In the Parent Verification (PV) service, KWS send a webhook call to notify your system of a successful parent verification. This requires some configuration on your side to receive the call:

  • In the Developer Portal, KWS prompts you to provide the URL to which KWS will send the webhook call.

  • Using the secret code that KWS provides, you need to generate a signature. This is matched against KWS' signature to confirm the webhook call is really coming from KWS.

For details of this configuration, see Configure your PV service webhook.
