What is eCourtDate?

eCourtDate is a cloud-native communications platform used by justice systems such as courts and prosecutors. Agencies can automatically send and receive two-way messages via texts (SMS), email, and voice calls.

Webhooks allows system admins to integrate eCourtDate's scheduling and messaging capabilities into their own applications and workflows.

Getting Started

Webhooks are designed to provide real-time data about messages, events, and payments for machine-to-machine communication. You can use webhooks to notify an internal Teams channel about new payments or a kiosk system about new check-ins.

Step 1 - Create a Webhook

Login to the Console, then click Webhooks from the top navigation.

In the Add Webhook form, enter a name (you can change this later), choose a region, then click Add.

Step 2 - Customize Webhook

(optional) Choose the Agency to use for the webhook.

(required) Enter your webhook URL. This is the URL that we'll send webhook events to.

Step 3 - Use Webhooks

Webhooks can be used in connected systems to respond to real-time changes. Use our REST API to update data and trigger multilingual notifications.
