Hi Arthur,

can you please try to point your Webhook to http://postcatcher.in
 or similar service to check whether the POST content is available from 
there? Make sure that 'Exclude details' checkbox is not ticked.

Failed webhooks POSTs should be logged in catalina.out with the following message [webhooks.util.http.CachingHttpContentRetriever] Unable to post information to  'http://myurl.net'



I think i was not really clear in my information.

JIRA Version is: 6.4.7 but i plan to use 7.1

Java Version is: 1.8.0_71

I use the Administration advanced entry -> Webhooks

to generate a webhook. I can reach this page but, it is allways empty


in log files i see that a webhook event is thrown, but it was thrown from anonymous user,

is some option i was missing to configure that webhook allways work with some other privileges?
