Definition

An endpoint represents a web server URL that accepts requests either from within Aha! Develop or from a third party (often called a webhook).

An endpoint that can be used without authenticating to Aha! Develop first is marked as "public": true in package.json. Public endpoints have URLs that contain system-generated random tokens so they cannot be guessed. You should treat a public endpoint URL with the same care that you would treat a password. Public endpoints only respond to POST requests.

"entryPoint": "src/webhooks/webhook.js",
"public": true,
}
}
}
}
}
