Tenders webhooks

What is it ?

A webhook is a request that SupplierXM sends to your server to alert you of an update. By subscribing for Tenders webhooks allows you to receive real-time notifications from SupplierXM when things happen on your account, so you can take automated actions in response, for example: when a retailer on SupplierXM sends you a Tender, then you will receive a webhook notification so that you can then view the new tender information.

6. Listen to notifications

  • EVENT_CREATED (new event and its UoNs received): webhook notification will contain the event_uuid, you can then call the event list API (List Event) with that UUID to get the data of this new event.

  • EVENT_UPDATED (event or its UoNs updated, including new UoN received for that event): webhook notification will contain the even_ uuid, you can then call the event list API (List Event) with that UUID to know what data has been updated.

  • EVENT_DELETED (event and its UoNs deleted): webhook notification will contain the event_uuid

  • BU_CHASED (reminder sent for a specific business unit (meaning UoN)): webhook notification will contain the business_unit_uuid

  • ANSWER_STATUS_UPDATED (a proposal status is updated: either when proposal is sent - value SENT or SEND-ERROR - or when the retailer updates the selection status (value UPDATE_REQUESTED, SELECTED, REJECTED)) : webhook notification will contain the answer_uuid, you can then call the answer list API (List Answer) with that UUID to know what is the new status

  • NEW_CHAT_MESSAGE (a new message is received for a specific UoN): webhook notification will contain the business_unit_uuid, you can then call the messages list API with that UUID to know what message has been received

  • ANSWER_SENDABLE_UPDATED (the sendable status of a proposal - which defines whether it can be sent to the retailer or not - is updated): webhook notification will contain the answer_uuid and the new proposal’s sendable status (either false, pending or true).

Note:

When you receive a notification, you must send an acknowledgment response to SupplierXM (HTTP code 200). If you haven’t sent an acknowledgment during 48 hours of a received notification, then we will consider the webhook broken and we will stop sending you notifications.

To unbreak it, please :

  • Call the API /v1/webhooks/{uuid}/unbreak, method POST (API reference link)
  • Mandatory field: your webhook uuid in the URL
