Re: Event rest API

Event rest API

is there something glaring that I am missing, for example some additional config, or does the Event API simply not work as described in the documentation. If I request all events for Orders, the only event type returned is 'confirmed' when the order is created - events for payment are entirely absent. The ORDERS_PAID webhook is firing and I can capture that, but it never appears in the stream of events. I have created orders both through the admin interface and the storefront, but no difference. It is a development store that I am using and protected customer data is enabled.


Thanks in advance ...

Hi C_j_s,


All the order related events listed here should be possible to be received by calls to events.json - I'll connect with our team internally to see if there's limitations related to development stores.

Hi Liam,

Did you manage to check if there are any limitations as regards to development stores ?
