Event poliing request url gets '\trigger' added to it

Hello all,

 

I'm new to event polling (hail to webhooks...), never created one, but today I had to.

 

I try to configure a request, but the request URL is changed from:

/apis/pbx/events

to

/apis/pbx/trigger/events

 

Why is this? I've seen more posts on this, but no (clear) answer yet. When I perform a get request on the latter URL, I get (obviously) an error. My trigger action doesn't work either. Any suggestions?

Its hard to explain this really, but let me try. There are 2 reasons--

(1) We wanted to provide a common path for triggers. Multiple webhook triggers, for instance, can be mapped to a single webhook subscription endpoint.

(2) Polling triggers often rely on a specific Url/resource that returns a list of items. Many connectors want to expose that endpoint as an operation itself 

 

The above means that you need an extra path for triggers. We just picked on using a '/trigger' prefix.

Hope this explains!
