Event Triggers provide real-time updates to changes in IdentityNow so you can take action as soon as an event occurs, rather than poll an API endpoint for updates. IdentityNow provides a user interface within the admin console to create and manage trigger subscriptions. These endpoints allow for programatically creating and managing trigger subscriptions.

There are two types of event triggers:

  • FIRE_AND_FORGET: This trigger type will send a payload to each subscriber without needing a response. Each trigger of this type has a limit of 50 subscriptions.
  • REQUEST_RESPONSE: This trigger type will send a payload to a subscriber and expect a response back. Each trigger of this type may only have one subscription.
