Probely saves records and sends notifications of important events related to an account. So, instead of polling Probely repeatedly to get information and figure out whether something happened, register Webhooks and get notified by Probely about events in real-time.

Probely sends notifications for the following events:

  • Account Events

    • A user was created.
    • A user was deleted.
    • A target was created.
    • A target was deleted.
    • A target was verified with success.
    • A target was verified and failed.
  • Target Events

    • A scan was started.
    • A scan was completed.
    • A scan was canceled.
    • A scan failed.
    • A vulnerability finding was detected.
    • A vulnerability finding was fixed.

Event notifications sent to Webhooks depend on the type of events Webhooks are registered for:

Webhook RegistrationEvent Notifications
Account EventsThe Webhook receives notifications from Probely about account events and target events for all targets of the account.
Target EventsThe Webhook receives notifications from Probely about target events for a specific target of the account.


The endpoints under Events provide the following functionality:

  • Register and manage Webhooks for account events.
  • Register and manage Webhooks for target events.
  • List and retrieve account events.
  • List and retrieve target events.

Important Notes

Some relevant information when using Events:

  • Account owners will only see and be notified of events related to their accounts.
  • The Webhook URLs are required to be HTTPS.
  • For security reasons, Webhooks should have a unique and hard-to-guess identifier.
    For example,
  • Event notifications are sent in JSON format.
  • After sending an event notification, an HTTP success status code (2XX) is expected in response.
  • In case an event notification fails, Probely will retry to send it again with an exponential back-off (maxing out at 4 hours) for 2 days, at the end of which an email is sent informing the failure.

Further functionality related to Events is provided in the following tags:

  • Account - Manage the account.
  • User - Manage specific settings of users returned by Account Events, like the profile, passwords, or notifications.
  • Targets - Manage targets returned by Account Events.
  • Scans - Manage scans returned by Target Events.
  • Findings - Manage vulnerability findings returned by Target Events.
