building a webhook's endpoint - richb201 - 06-17-2022

I have a webhook coming from Stripe. Should I create my endpoint by using the controller and have its function call a function in a Model? Or is there a better way in CI3 such as directly accessing a view? If I do the view, how do I directly address  it from Stripe? This is running on the public internet.

Insite I read the article (and comments) and can surely see the authors point. In my case, I am just marking if the users payment went through. I already have a record for each user in my table. So I just need to update the field to paid or not paid. I use RDS, not a local table, so there could be an aws delay. But I am not really doing any processing.

For speed purposes, should the webhook being going directly to a view, rather than a method in my controller? How can l directly address a view from the app that is sending the webhook? How do I path it?

Thx

Or is a method in the controller preferred?

If you need to also update a database table field then yes a method would be the way to go.

Insite, good idea. Just one question. The examples show getting the payload with read file://input. How will thar work if I am going through a method?

Yes, it should still work it's just pure php code.
