Channels can be created without any subscribed Topics. You can subscribe to Topics at any time, during or after setting up the Channel.

Webhooks and emails need to be confirmed prior to being activated (ready for use) in order to prevent abuse of non-owned mediums.  Once a Channel is set up, a confirmation message is sent to the endpoint to allow the owner to confirm it within a 24 hour period.

Channel TypeDescription
EmailThe notification is sent via email to the specified address.
WebhookThe notification is sent via HTTP POST message to a specified url. The messages contain JSON documents (see Examples: Rule Triggered Webhook Messages).
