At what point does Zapier hit the subscribe post URL we set

When you configure your API Request to use REST HookPolling, At what point does Zapier hit the subscribe post URL we set here? I noticed it was not hit throughout the whole process of creating, testing and publishing the Zap (Still in private mode/development mode)


Trigger Type



Enter the endpoint URL to create a new webhook subscription.


Enter the endpoint URL to remove a webhook subscription.

Perform List

Enter the endpoint URL Zapier should check for recent items, to provide sample data in the Zap Editor. 


The perform function is called each time a new hook is received. Make any needed changes to the data before it's returned to the Zap.


This is very confusing.

HI @Oti254 ,

The Subscribe Hook function is called when turning on / publishing the Zap. Are you saying you published the Zap and it worked without seeing that method called? Did I misunderstand your question?

Hope that helps, but let me know if you have more questions!
