21 customer reviews

SKU: o365 wp flow base plugin Category: Requires: WordPress 4.0 or higher Compatible up to: WordPress 5.4.2


The Webhooks and REST API Manager is a WordPress plugin used by both beginners and advanced users to securely share your WordPress data and activities in a customized and granular way for use by external systems, such as mobile applications, IOT devices, reporting systems and many other scenarios.

The plugin is built with three main components:

  • Triggers – a WordPress action, ie. User registration or Post publication
  • Webhook Action – Triggered WordPress actions send  JSON data to the incoming webhook urls from an external system.
  • Rest API Manager – Used to toggle the visibility of, and customize the WordPress endpoints

You can use them in any combination, adding as many webhook actions as you want.

The process is simple:

  • You select the Trigger
  • Select the WordPress type – post, users, media, forms etc. Refine the criteria by user roles, custom post type, specific form or taxonomy to get the correct data set and meta values.
  • Add your incoming webhook url to the action configuration
  • Save your Action

Default Triggers

These are already defined in plugin’s core and are ready to use. You can enable or disable them on the Settings page.

REST API Authentication

We currently support Basic authentication, with the support for JWT and OAUTH 2.0 authentication (coming soon).

JWT: Extends the WP REST API using JSON Web Tokens Authentication as an authentication method. JSON Web Tokens are an open, industry standard RFC 7519 method for representing claims securely between two parties.


Most of the shared hosting has disabled the HTTP Authorization Header by default.

To enable this option you’ll need to edit your .htaccess file adding the follow

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} ^(.*)
RewriteRule ^(.*) - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%1]
