As software continues to eat the world, an increasing emphasis on real-time information, seamless integrations, and automation has propelled webhooks to the forefront of modern application architectures. Webhooks, are now a core component in driving real-time event based workflows across platforms. You can check out the State of Webhooks here.

Special thanks to Ojus Save from Zoom, Judy Vander Sluis from Intuit, Sharon Yelenik from Cloudinary, Sarah Edwards from Github, and Kanad Gupta from ReadMe for collaborating with us on our webhook documentation reviews. It really helped us understand how people think about documenting their webook APIs and informed a lot of our decisions when creating this report.

In this comprehensive report on the State of Webhooks in 2023, we looked at over 100 of the top API providers, examining how they've embraced and implemented webhooks, and analyzing the diverse ways these implementations have taken form. Are most leading API providers on board with best practices? Beyond mere adoption, how have they optimized, secured, and enriched their webhook offerings to cater to the needs of today’s developers and businesses?

Recognizing that ground truths often emerge in real-world use-cases, we've tapped into our own customer base, compiling an intriguing cache of statistics that shed light on the realities of webhook deliveries. How often do they falter in the wild? How many retries do these messages generally need before they successfully land in their destined applications? These firsthand statistics not only offer a clear picture of current delivery success rates but also demonstrate the value of implementing best practices.

Webhooks are more than mere HTTP callbacks; they embody a commitment to proactive, real-time communication in a world that's growing ever more interconnected. With this report, we invite you to explore the current state of webhooks, and hope to spur continued adoption of webhook best practices.
