The piece that follows your-database-url/hooks/ is generated randomly by default and it is unique for a database, though you can provide some meaningful name.

Name

The name of a new table where webhook data will be stored.

Notes

Any text you want to attribute your webhook with.

Sender

The first three options denote the data format webhook expects to receive when no special processing is required. Other options are services that either require some special responses or need a shared secret to calculate the signature. If the service you are integrating with requires either please drop us a note at support@teamdesk.net and we will add it to the list.

You can find the detailed example how to use webhooks for integration with HelloSign in the following blogpost.
