    Loans and Requests Triggers for Webhooks

    The Webhooks integration profile has two new check boxes in the Actions tab of the profile for Requests and Loans. A webhook is triggered when Loan is selected and a loan is created, returned, or declared lost. A webhook is also triggered when Requests is selected and a hold, booking, move, digitization, or work order request is created, closed, or placed on the hold shelf. For more information, see Webhooks and the Developer Network.
