Outbound Events: Set Events to Trigger Messages

Management

Outbound Events

HTTP Recipients

You can configure your B Series Appliance to send messages to an HTTP server or to an email address when different events are triggered.

The variables sent by the B Series Appliance arrive as an HTTP POST method and can be accessed by calling the method used to retrieve POST data in your coding language. If the server does not respond with an HTTP 200 to indicate success, the B Series Appliance will re-queue the current event and retry it later.
