Sending Webhooks with Exponential Backoff Discussion

General • Asked by Chris Oliver

Hi,

love the episode!

Just a tiny remark; when running this code;

  def send_create_webhook!
    User.has_webhook_enabled.find_each do |user|
      SendWebhookJob.perform_later(user.webhook_url, {
        type: "tweet.created",
        id: id,
        body: body,
        user: {
          id: user_id,
          name: user.name,
        }
      })
    end
  end

Wouldn't that be sending the wrong user.name? You pass in the user that wants to receive the webhook and in the body, you refer to that webhook user, instead of the user that created the tweet.

I think refering to self.user.name would fix that.


Sidekiq has an automatic job retry with exponential backoff:

Why didn't you use that?
