Footprint uses webhooks to asynchronously update your application's code on critical events in the lifecycle of an onboarding. Webhooks are critical controls for automating account opening processes and ensuring your user accounts remain in compliance. For example: receive webhooks when a user completes an onboarding, if the status of an onboarding changes when user is verified from a manual review state, or if a OFAC/PEP watchlist alert is triggered for a user.

You can quickly configure webhooks and test them from within the Footprint developer dashboard.
