    Webhook for deletion of Jive content

    maxklinger

      Hi there,

       

      today one is notified by Jive Webhooks if Jive content is created or modified. However, as far as I know it is not possible to be notified by a Webhook after Jive content has been deleted.

       

      There are use cases where this would be very helpful, especially when it comes to External Stream Activity objects, that are mapped to content within the client application.

       

      To give you an example, in the HYPE Innovation App it is possible to submit HYPE Ideas from within a Jive group:

       

       

      This triggers the creation of a HYPE Idea object in HYPE and an External Stream Activity object in Jive, whose externalID is the ID of the HYPE Idea object:

       

      We have already implemented Webhooks for Comments and Likes, but we are not notified if somebody deletes the External Stream Activity object. Unfortunately this quickly leads to inconsistent data, as HYPE does not know for which HYPE idea object the External Stream Activity object is still available on Jive side.

       

      A Webhook for deletion of Jive content would solve this problem. Otherwise we would have to check if the External Stream Activity object is still available in Jive, everytime an Idea is requested from HYPE.
