Harver Webhook


The setup guide provides step by step guidelines and instructions on configuring the Harver Webhook. This is needed when you are using the Harver Public API to build an integration and; to subscribe to certain events, Harver can send webhook events in order for your system to identify and get the candidate’s application progress and status.

Before setting up the integrations, check the Integration Guidelines, Integration FAQs and the Harver API documents to make sure you have all necessary information and configurations ready in Harver Platform.

Currently four events are supported that are;

ApplicationStarted - When Candidate Starts the applications and is registered at Harver. (Candidate Status: in-progress)
