Subscribers are the applications/partners that receive the events that are distributed by Events Hub.

To receive events, subscribers must be connected to topics, which are grouped within handlers. Each topic can have different contexts available to the subscriber. Therefore, when events are sent to a topic with a context setting, only the subscribers of that topic with that context enabled will receive the events.

The Events Hub takes care of all the security, ensuring subscribers a reliable source of messages.

  • Read more about topics on the handlers page;

  • Understand contexts.

  • Access the security documentation to understand how it works.

The Subscribers screen lists all registered subscribers and allows you to create new ones:

subscriber screen

You can search for a specific subscriber using the filters at the top of the page. They allow you to search by:

  • subscriber’s name;

  • responsible developer’s email;

  • handler’s name;

  • creation start and end date;

  • status.

Use the Order by field to define the ordering of the list. You can choose to view by the most recent or oldest creation date, or in alphabetical order.

To view the information of a specific subscriber, click on their name in the list. You will be directed to the Topics screen where you can edit the subscriber’s information and enable or disable the topics they receive events from.

Creating a subscriber

To create a subscriber, click on the + button in the bottom right corner of the screen. The registration happens in four stages:

etapas subscriber


To start registration, fill in the fields:

  • Name: which must be unique.

  • Status: either approved, pending, rejected, or cancelled.

  • Description: non-required field to help identify the subscriber.

  • Developer: email address of the developer responsible for the subscriber.


In this step, you ensure the security of the connection between subscribers and the Events Hub.

Access the documentation of Security and Keys to understand how it works.

We have implemented two layers of security:

Digital signature

When distributing events to subscribers, we include a digital signature that allows the subscriber to validate the request’s origin. To generate this signature, you need to validate a shared key between the Events Hub and the subscriber. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Register a key in the field Key.
    If the validation time expires, click the icon refresh icon to restart time count.

  2. To validade the key, click VALIDATE KEY.

If the validation is successful, you will see the message Post key URL validated url validated on the Security screen.

If you register a subscriber without validating the shared key, you won’t be able to link it to any topics. You can only do this after validating the key, following the steps described above.

Static or dynamic token

After sending the shared key, you can also include a static or dynamic token to be passed on in requests to subscribers.

token registration
Token configuration is not mandatory. Understand how they work and the differences between static and dynamic in the documentation of Tokens.

To set up a token, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the CONFIGURE TOKEN button;

  2. Select the type between Static and Dynamic;

  3. In the Location field, select where the token should be passed in the request. The options are header or query param;

  4. In the Name field, enter the name by which the token value will be passed;

  5. Depending on the token type you selected, configure:

    1. Token SHA-256: token value. You can generate a random token using the icon token icon.
      After saving, the token will be displayed only once in a modal window. Copy it and save it to a file on your computer.

      1. OAuth URL: URL for token value generation.
        After saving, a request will be sent to the subscriber’s URL to generate the token and validate the configuration.

Access the documentation and check the details of the request sent and the expected response.

If a token is configured, the screen will show its details:

token post validate
You can only configure one token by subscriber.


In the TOPICS tab, you link the subscriber to the topics they will receive events from. Registered topics are displayed using handlers.

  • You can search for specific handlers using the Keywords field, which searches for terms used in the handler’s name or description. In addition, you can reorder the list by name or creation date using the Order by field.

To link topics to your subscriber, follow these steps:

  1. When choosing a handler, click on the icon view topics icon in the View Topics column;

  2. On the screen that opens, click on the icon expand icon and also enable the context for the subscriber.

  3. In the Subscriber URL field, enter the URL that will receive the events;

  4. In the Status Code field, enter the success status code that should be returned. This field only accepts codes from 200 to 299. You can enter 2xx to cover the whole family.
    The Events Hub will make a request to validate the URL by waiting for the code entered.

If the URL is not validated, the subscriber will be registered but will not receive events.

When sending events to the subscriber, the Events Hub will wait for the code you set as success in the Status Code field. If you specify the code 204 and receive 200, the system will understand that the delivery has failed and will send the event to the Delivery Retry queue. To avoid this, specify 2xx in the Status Code field. This way, any code from the 200 family will be interpreted as success.

add topic subscriber

Each selected topic will be listed in the SUBSCRIBED TOPICS section. To remove the association, click on the icon delete icon.

The STATUS column indicates whether the URL has been validated successfully or not. The green icon represents success. The gray icon means that the URL was registered, but validation failed.
