I’ve recently discovered and started testing the Discourse webhook feature (I’m working to add support for it to the rbot IRC bot). I’ve enabled a webhook that triggers in all events, and one thing I’ve noticed is that even with no forum action I’m seeing periodic updates to the built-in groups (admin, moderators, staff, trust_level_*, everyone) and users (-1, -2) being added to groups. I also periodically get notified about updates to categories, even if nothing was changed (manually). In case it matters, the Discourse instance is the GPUSPH one, graciously hosted by Discourse itself.
I was wondering
- why these events get triggered (they seem to be always the same) and
- is there maybe a way to filter out these events specifically (leaving the same event classes active)?
