HTTP Webhook Connector URL


I have Camunda Platform 8 Self-Managed running via Docker Compose. I’m trying to set up an HTTP Webhook inbound connector to start a process instance in Camunda externally.

Documentation (HTTP Webhook | Camunda Platform 8 Docs) specifies this step:
“In the Webhook Configuration section, set the Webhook ID. This value is used to build a URL endpoint of your webhook. For example, given the Webhook ID value is myWebhookPath, the complete webhook URL endpoint will be http(s)://<base URL>/inbound/myWebhookPath.”
I deployed a model using a webhook template but having problems with the REST endpoint.

What should the point to? In docker-compose.yaml connectors container is configured to listen on port 8085 so I tried http://localhost:8085/inbound/myWebhookPath but it won’t accept any POST requests.

Thank you.

It depends on the container networking.

Just to check, you set the value in the configuration as myWebhookPath, right? Not the entire URL…


Correct. Just ‘myWebhookPath’:

I’m using docker-compose.yaml from here: camunda-platform/docker-compose.yaml at main · camunda/camunda-platform · GitHub. I did change the value of CAMUNDA_CONNECTOR_WEBHOOK_ENABLED to “true” in the file.

Couldn’t find that setting (anymore?) in the yaml file and assume it’s because of a change in the configuration of inbound webhook handling.
So if I understand the self-managed inbound Webhook docs right, the caller should reach the connectors framework.
So baseURL is typically localhost:8085 am I right?
