Test webhook works, But actual event does not fire webhook

1 0 0

Hi, I am setting up webhooks to update and cancel orders, and though I followed the Shopify documentation and the test webhooks hit the URL properly, creating/updating/cancelling an actual order does not fire the webhook.   When I do the 'send test webhook'  I get the data and can log the headers and test order info.  Right now the page the webhook is hitting simply logs the data and returns a 200- so it is not an issue with the coding of the endpoint. Per this  forum ( I am hoping someone can check the logs and tell me what is going on.   Order ID:

Hey @AkGalbraith,


The requests are firing, some retry a larger number of times indicating the server doesn't respond with a 200 (or quick enough). There's also an error returned from your side "local error: tls: no renegotiation".


Try using a service like to debug.

I'm having the same problem, and believe I have found the source of the problem.  In your SSL, the TLS needs to be version 1.2.

My server is a Windows 2012 server hosted at Rackspace.

Google searches indicate the procedure for editing TLS to ver 1.2  involves editing the registry 

I myself am uncomfortable editing the sever's registry, I'm going to contact Rackspace to see if they can assist me.


Something tells me Shopify probably warned us a few months ago about this needed detail.

My webhooks worked fine up until about 6 months ago.   I think it must have been about that time when Shopify started requiring TLS ver 1.2


I could be wrong about all this, but this is all that I found to help.

Notice that log of attempted webhooks shows "TLS renegotiate"  problem.

My server was having the same webhooks problem,... that of TEST notifications working, but Live Data notifications not working.
