Create a Custom Event Trigger

With Space Cloud, you can trigger webhooks on any custom events in your application. Space Cloud uses an in-built eventing queue to invoke your webhooks reliably.


Make sure you have enabled eventing for your Space Cloud cluster. To enable eventing, head over to the Settings tab in the Eventing section:

Eventing config

Check the Enable eventing module checkbox.

Select an Eventing DB and hit Save.

Eventing DB is used to store event and invocation logs.
