What is HTTP Notification
HTTP Notification is a notification that DOKU send to notify your application for certain events. Basically, you need to setup an endpoint on your side to receive the notification, which could be written in Java, PHP, Python, Node.js, or anything. The HTTP Notification endpoint has an associated URL (e.g., https://your-domain.com/notifications/payments).
DOKU will send the notification body in JSON format, therefore you can parse it with JSON parser. Please mind that DOKU might add new fields in the notification body in order to cover new use cases in our notification service, you are suggested to parse it in non strict format. This prevents the parser from throwing an error or exception for new fields.
