Browsing Events

Events list

The event list displays the historical record of your events in descending order. Each event can be selected to preview the event request data and response data. By default, when selecting an event, the most recent attempt is used to populate the response data. You can also select any of the other attempts.

The event list displays up to 50 events at any given time. You can travel back and forth using the Previous and Next buttons at the bottom of the list. Hookdeck uses cursor pagination thus navigating between pages will not be impacted by new incoming events when the live update is turned on.

Inspect request and response

Inspecting event request data and attempt response data is very practical to troubleshoot issues. For each event, the request Headers and Body are provided either as plain text or JSON. For the attempt, the Status Code and the response Body is displayed.

You can open the JSON documents in fullscreen!


HTTP response codes

When your destination responds with a valid HTTP response code, it will be displayed as the status.

A response code within 2XX is considered successful while a status code above 4XX is considered a failure.

Error codes

If your destination was unreachable or failed to respond, you will see the ERR code. A more specific error code can be found by clicking on the event.

The possible codes are:

  • CONNECTION_REFUSED: The request to your destination could not be made because the connection was refused.
  • CONNECTION_RESET: The request to your destination could not be made because the connection was forcibly closed by your server.
  • NOT_FOUND: The request to your destination could not be made because the domain or host was not found or unavailable.
  • TIMEOUT: The request to your destination exceeded the 30 seconds timeout. The request might have still been processed by your destination.
  • MISSING_URL: Your destination does not have a HTTP URL configured. It can only receive attempts on the CLI.
  • CLI: The attempt failed to be forwarded to your local server by the CLI. Check your console for more details.
  • SELF_SIGNED_CERT: Your destination uses a self-signed SSL certificate. Hookdeck only supports valid, verifiable certificates.
  • ERR_TLS_CERT_ALTNAME_INVALID: Your destination's SSL certificate is not valid.
  • UNKNOWN: A uncategorized error occurred. If one of these errors is triggered, the technical team is notified and will investigate the situation.
