Events
Iron Plans can send your service webhook events when Customers take action, or important events are about to happen. For example, you can receive an event when a Customer subscribes to one of your plans, when a subscription is renewed or cancelled, or if any payment fails.

Setup

To receive webhook events, set a webhook URL in settings:
Webhook URL
A different URL can be set for Live Mode and Test Mode.

Verification

Webhook events are sent with a X-Signature header, with the value sha256=HASH . HASH is a SHA-256 hashed string of the POST body using your most recently created private token as the secret key. By reproducing the hash on your side and checking it matches the X-Signature, you can verify that the webhook sender is Iron Plans.
Python
1
import hashlib
2
import hmac
3
4
# Get `private_token` from https://dash.ironplans.com/tokens
5
secret = str.encode(private_token)
6
7
body = str.encode(request.body)
8
9
# Create an expected signature
10
signature = hmac.new(secret, body, digestmod=hashlib.sha256).hexdigest()
11
12
# Verify sender
13
req_sig = request.headers.get('X-Signature')
14
assert len(req_sig) == 71
15
assert req_sig.startswith("sha256=")
16
assert req_sig.split("=")[1] == signature

Retries

Webhook events are sent immediately after an action on the relevant resource occurs. If the reply to the webhook is not 200 , then the event is considered not delivered, and will be retried again up to an hour later, for a total of 3 retries.

Examples

Example Plan event

Plan events are sent every time a plan is created or modified in any way.
