When a webhook is trigerred, a call is made in a HTTP POST with a Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded, and the JSON encoded payload is given as argument in the payload parameter of the request. The endpoint can use the information included in this payload in order to perform various tasks (continuous deployment, backup…).

You can see the status of the response (200 OK, 404 Not Found…) in the logs section of each webhook.
