There are times where you'd just like to quickly know what's going on in your CDS instance in 'real time' without filling up your Plugin Trace Log.

Here is a neat way of enabling logging using webhooks:

  1. Goto Webhook.site (or alternative) and copy your webhooks URL:


  2. Open the Plugin Registration Tool and select Register -> Register New WebHook
  3. Enter a name (it doesn't matter what it is) and paste in the Endpoint URL you copied in step 1.
  4. Register Steps on the messages you are interested (e.g. Retrieve, RetrieveMultiple, etc.) you can even put in filtering entities and attributes if you are interested in specific cases.
  5. Use your CDS instance and watch the messages show in more or less real time!
  6. When you are finished, you can simply disable the steps or delete the webhook.

Hope this helps!
