Webhoot - 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?

Hi @bbrazeau ,


Could you please share a screenshot of the flow when you replace the HTTP-HTTP action with HTTP-Webhook and set the Subscribe URI to "Receivers" URL?

Could you please share the run history of the flow when the sender don't get the message or stop running.


Best regards,

Sure, may be overkill but here are a few images to review.


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.

Caller - HTTP - Run.png


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


Caller - Run not finishing.png


And the run history shows its well beyond the 5 second delay so the Webhook isn't reacting to the returned message.Caller - Run History - multiple minutes.png



Likely I have the webhook setup incorrectly.



@v-alzhan-msft- is there other info I can provide to make it clearer?
