What are webhooks?

Webhooks are an extension of an API, but instead of your code requesting data from Smstools, Smstools sends data to you. The data arrives in a web request to your application. Webhooks are also used to notify your application of events such as an incoming call or message. Since the Smstools servers need to be able to send data to your application via webhooks, you need to set up a webserver to receive the incoming HTTP requests. You also need to specify the URL of each webhook on your webserver so that data can be sent to each one.
