Learn about event codes and what they mean.
Each notification contains an
eventCode, which indicates which event has occurred. These are described below.
Most event codes will be enabled when you've set up Standard notifications, but some need to be set up by our Support team.
We may introduce new event types from time to time. When setting up notifications, we recommend that your server does not expect a predefined set of values.
