Targets in Workflows

Target Systems: Receiving and Processing Workflow Notifications

Targets are URL endpoints or Next Identity Connect integrations that receive and process notifications and send responses. Targets should support signed and encrypted JWT (JWS and JWE) formats.

Target systems are publicly accessible endpoints or Next Identity Connect integrations. The event itself will not contain personally identifiable information (PII) and, therefore, will be sent without authorization. However, if the target system wishes to receive events potentially containing PII (such as transactional emails), we recommend they support encrypted JWT (JWE) on their end.

Once the target system receives an event notification, it must verify the event's signature to ensure it originated from Next Identity and has not been intercepted.

Workflows allows for the configuration of multiple targets to receive event notifications.
