SignalStack allows you to create two types of webhooks: Test and Production. In this documentation, we will understand the core differences between the two.
Let’s get started 🚀
A production webhook is a live webhook that can receive a signal from a trading platform like TrendSpider and convert it into an executed order in your stock broker or cryptocurrency exchange account.
For more information, please refer to this documentation- Create Webhooks.
Before you start creating the production (live) webhooks, it is recommended to create the test webhook first. SignalStack can process the incoming signals from the test webhook and help you identify the following:
- Whether SignalStack is receiving the signals or not.
- Whether the webhook is in the correct format or not.
In this way, test webhooks create an opportunity for you to have a better experience while creating a production (live) webhook. You can start creating the test webhook by following the steps outlined below:
Step 1: Click on the "Brokers & Webhooks" from the left menu.
Step 2: Click on the "Create Test Webhook" button.
The test webhook URL will be created along with an example request.
