CKBox 2.4.0: Now featuring webhooks

As announced at DevWorld 2024 in Amsterdam, CKBox now has some powerful new integration capabilities. Available as both a cloud and on-premises file management system, CKBox provides a flexible solution for storing, serving, categorizing, and optimizing, and images and files.

CKBox works as an independent Cloud Asset Manager and also natively integrates with CKEditor 5 to improve its functionality by enabling media embedding features. It stores all media content used in CKEditor 5, including content and images imported from Word or Google Docs files.

Let’s take a closer look at all the new features and improvements these releases have added to CKBox.

# NEW Webhooks

The newly released CKBox version 2.4.0 contains webhook integrations so developers worldwide can connect CKBox with other independent online systems to communicate with one another and share data. This highly requested feature allows CKBox customers to wire CKBox into their content ingestion systems, document collaboration, and content supply chains.

Webhooks can be used for a range of critical tasks. Let’s look at three major examples.

# 1. Real-time notifications

Get instant notifications of events like file uploads, modifications, and removals. This functionality enables real-time updates, allowing integrated systems to stay synchronized and trigger automated workflows promptly in response to file and folder changes.

# 2. Workflow automation

You can automatically initiate additional actions or processes in response to specific events detected by the webhook. For instance, upon receiving a notification of a file upload, a webhook can automatically trigger processes such as AI analysis, updating metadata, or notifying relevant stakeholders.

# 3. Tracking user changes

Webhooks allow for detection of actions like file uploads, modifications, or deletions performed by users. By leveraging webhooks, applications can promptly notify external systems of these changes, enabling efficient synchronization and facilitating comprehensive tracking of user activity within the application ecosystem.

The above image shows the results of a review workflow implemented with CKBox and the newly released Webhook functionality.
