We are listening to
topic_event events, and from what I can see, I’ve only seen this issue on topic events.
If I go to the web hooks dashboard, I may see that some events failed with an status code 0, but its not clear what the error was:
I was able to reproduce the 0 status codes by making my web server time out the HTTP request, but in other cases I would see status 0 right away after doing an action in Discourse, without waiting for a timeout.
Redelivering the web hook events tends to work, even though I sometimes get a mysterious 500 error without any explanations, and re-delivering is not possible.
The most worrying bit is that I’ve seen some events not getting delivered, and not even appearing on Discourse’s web hooks dashboard at all.
Is this a known issue? Would there be any reason for this to only happen on topic events?
We have a server receiving web hook events from other services as well, such as GitHub, and we never experienced anything similar, so its unlikely that our server is failing to serve the HTTP request.
