A webhook is a user-defined callback that is triggered by some event, such as pushing code to a repository. Bitrise makes extensive use of webhooks:

You can add an incoming webhook automatically either when creating an app or later; it’s also possible to manually add a webhook to any supported service.

Triggers and webhooks

If you want to be able to automatically trigger builds on Bitrise, you need to register a webhook with your git service provider! For example, if you want a pull request made in your GitHub repository to trigger a build, you must register a Bitrise webhook on GitHub.

Outgoing webhooks can be added either on the website or via the Bitrise API.
