Nylas v2 webhook schemas

This page provides schema references for the webhook notifications that Nylas v2 sends.

Keep in mind

  • The attributes and metadata sub-objects are included in all v2 webhook notifications, but are populated for Message webhooks only. In all other cases, they are null.
  • The namespace_id sub-object is deprecated and has been replaced by account_id, but is included in webhook notifications. You can disregard it.

Account webhook notifications

You can subscribe to the following Account webhook triggers to be notified when changes are made:

  • account.running
  • account.stopped
  • account.invalid
  • account.connected
  • account.sync_error
