Webhook - How to?

Trying to understand how to setup webhooks in flow to convert an existing flow that sometimes times out but not always.  Trying to distill it down to a simple example.


  • Flow Button
  • Http - HTTP
    • Method: Post
    • URI: <Receiver's URL>
    • Headers: Content-Type application/json
    • Body: {"message": "Do Stuff"}
  • Parse Json



  • When HTTP Request is Received
  • Delay 10 minutes
  • Response
    • {"message":"Success"}

The real flow does stuff but its basically that.
So is converting this to Webhooks basically replacing the HTTP-HTTP action with HTTP-Webhook and setting the Subscribe URI to "Receivers" URL?  I tried that, but Sender never got the message / stopped running and I had to cancel it.
Also what is the unsubscribe URI?


So the basic Flow with the HTTP caller:

And the Receiver - I only have the delay at 5 seconds as I'm not testing the timeout.



Successful run returning the Success Message after the 5 second delay.

Everything works as expected. I then added a second HTTP action to the flow for the webhook call.

Running the flow, it triggers both calls to the receiver which were 5 seconds apart from the delay.

But looking at the Flow's activities, its stopped on the Webhook action

And the run history shows its well beyond the 5 second delay so the Webhook isn't reacting to the returned message.
