Where Do I Find Webhook Logs and Test an Active Webhook?

I am trying for the first time and have successfully setup a sandbox checkout option using the Accept Hosted redirect method, but as far as I can tell my webhook is not receiving the net.authorize.payment.authcapture.created event or if it is it is not processing it right. Does have place where I could view the history of all attempts to send webhook notifications to my server and what was contained in those hooks? Is there a way I could click on a transaction and make send a new notification right away?


Right now I am using a domain that is not in production on my remote server becasue I couldn't find a solution for testing webhooks on localhost. I am coming from Stripe and they had an app you could install on your desktop that would allow that, but I see no such thing from Authorize. The method I am trying to use is the same one found at


Here is some sample code edited to omit some potentially sensitive stuff.


namespace Authnetjson;
// Set your secret key. Remember to switch to your live secret key in production.
ini_set('display_startup_errors', 1);
// error message to be logged
$error_message = "This is an error message!";
// path of the log file where errors need to be logged
$log_file = "phperr.txt";
// setting error logging to be active
ini_set("log_errors", TRUE);
// setting the logging file in php.ini
ini_set('error_log', $log_file);
require 'vendor/autoload.php';
require_once 'constants/SampleCodeConstants.php';
$headers = getallheaders();
$payload = file_get_contents("php://input");
$webhook = new AuthnetWebhook(\SampleCodeConstants::WEBHOOK_SIGNATURE, $payload, $headers);
if ($webhook->isValid()) {
    // Access notification values
    $transactionId = $webhook->payload->id;
    $merchantrefid = $webhook->payload->merchantReferenceId;
    $eventtype = $webhook->payload->eventType;
    // Here you can get more information about the transaction
    $request  = AuthnetApiFactory::getJsonApiHandler(\SampleCodeConstants::MERCHANT_LOGIN_ID, \SampleCodeConstants::MERCHANT_TRANSACTION_KEY);
    $response = $request->getTransactionDetailsRequest(array(
        'transId' => $transactionId,
    $transtype = $response->transaction->transactionType;
    $transstatus = $response->transaction->transactionStatus;
    global $wpdb;
    if($eventtype == 'net.authorize.payment.authcapture.created')
        $wpdb->query("UPDATE orders SET status = 'paid', transid = '".$transactionId."', transtype = '".$transtype."', transstatus = '".$transstatus."' WHERE refid = '".$merchantrefid."'");

I also added a second endpoint at WebhookInbox just to make sure webhooks are being sent somewhere. I have yet to receive a single notification at that location despite it being listed as an active webhook in my account. I made another test purchase and still have not received any notifications at all at the second endpoint.


Also, how do I get the webhook identification number? When I check the webhooks section of my account the webhook id numbers are not displayed.

You can obtain the webhook id by looking at its link, the number after is the id, and the part after that is the token.
