Dataflow Automation Webhooks
What is a Webhook?
A webhook delivers data to other applications as it happens, meaning you get data immediately.
In terms of Dataflow Automation, the webhook serves the role of allowing a web service to automatically send information to your Dataflow. Every DFA webhook has a unique identifier called a "Webhook URL".
This is used by other applications as a data destination, similar to an email address for a message.
