Some of our customers note that they're worried they're getting the same webhook twice, so we're here to tell you not to fear!

Merge won't send you multiple webhooks for the same event. The hook ID corresponds to the type of event that caused the hook to fire, so it's possible you could see the same ID twice, though there are multiple unique instances of the same event, e.g. "candidate.created."

You can avoid false duplicates by relying on the webhook signature as the unique identifier of a given event. This is labeled as the X-Merge-Webhook-Signature in the header of the payload, so we recommend leveraging this to ensure you're certain webhooks are for distinct events!
