WebHooks are an established technology in GIS.

A webhook is a mechanism that allows an application to provide other applications with event-driven information.

You can configure your webhooks to automatically notify you when events associated with your items, groups, and users occur. Once a webhook is triggered, an HTTP request is made to a unique, user-defined payload URL to provide information regarding the event.

Do we need to add a new tag?

Tags can be created when questions are asked. Since the tag doesn't exist yet it appears it hasn't been needed yet.

If you are asking a question and do not have the required reputation to create the tag, you can flag it and ask a moderator to add the tag, or ask here in meta, or ask in chat.


I think it may be premature to create a tag because the term has never been used in a question, and has only ever been used twice in an answer (recently in Aug 2020 and two years ago in Sep 2018).

There is no rule for how frequently a term needs to be used here before it becomes tag worthy but the rule of thumb that I use on when to create a new tag is whether it is likely to be used a few hundred times over the next few years.
