Webhook Actions

The webhook action will send an HTTP POST to the URL of your choosing. The body contains information about the deployment, and a signature to verify the webhook is valid and originated at Sleuth.


The body of the webhook will look something like this:

  "organization": {
    "slug": "myorg"
  "name": "791f0e0",
  "on": "2021-02-03T00:35:09.823706+00:00",
  "branch": "master",
  "revision": "791f0e0ce8612717da226d73caac7790e0de4032",
  "environment": {
    "slug": "production"
  "changeSource": {
    "slug": "sleuth-test"
  "health": "healthy",
  "author": {
    "email": "nobody@example.com"


The webhook will contain two headers you can use to safely validate the message:

  • X-SLEUTH-TIMESTAMP - The unix timestamp, in seconds, of when the webhook was created

  • X-SLEUTH-SIGNATURE - The signature of the timestamp and request body, signed with the API key

The signature follows the format Slack uses to validate their webhooks. For more information how it works and how to validate the signature, see the Slack docs

The only difference is Sleuth uses the API key from your Sleuth organization as the signing key.
