Responding to Requests
Your server needs to response to requests with an appropriate HTTP response code. A code may differ, depending on whether the request is successful or fails to be proceeded.

To Respond to a Successful Request
- Use HTTP response code ‘200 OK’ to indicate a successful job delivery and stop Webhook attempting to forward the request again.
To Respond to a Failed Request
- Use an appropriate 4xx or 5xx HTTP response code depending on the type of the error. The Webhook attempts to deliver the failed request until it succeeds or reaches the limit.
Note: The Webhook attempts to deliver the failed limit 15 times before dropping it, using an increasing delay between attempts (1, 2, 4, 8, etc minutes). Unsuccessful requests are stored in an error queue.
