Requests ​

Requests are HTTP requests made to invoke any of a project's deployments. As such, requests consist of an HTTP method, URL, query string, headers, and body. These attempts will count towards the Requests quota of the Workspace.


Requests have the following properties:

  • Method: The HTTP method used to make the request. For example, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, etc.
  • URL: The URL of the project.
  • Query: The HTTP query string sent with the request.
  • Headers: The HTTP headers sent with the request.
  • Body: The HTTP body sent with the request.

Real-time event handling via WebHooks

Projects can also be triggered in response to real-time event from applications which support WebHooks such as GitHub, WhatsApp, etc.

HTTP Requests ​

HTTP requests are the most common type of request. They are triggered by making an HTTP request to the project's URL. For example:


Invocations ​

Invocations, not to be confused with requests, are the actual running of a project. The following example scenarios help illustrate the difference between requests and invocations:

  • If an unauthorized HTTP request is made to a private endpoint, the project will not be executed, but it will still be counted as a request.
  • If an authorized HTTP request is made, the project will be executed once.
  • If a real-time event is received, the project will be executed once per event.
