Trello API: should the webhook return actions as an array?

Given a board having two 3rd party systems using the api to interact with the cards on the board.

When a card is moved into a specific list, system A sends a request to the API to update the said card doing both of these in a single API call:

- set "dueComplete" to TRUE

- set "closed" to TRUE

System B listens to updates for the board and its objects on a webhook. For the scenario above, the webhook returns JSON having a single action where "action.data.old" only contains a key-value pair for "dueComplete" (not for "closed") and the "action.display.translationKey" part of the JSON only mentions "action_marked_the_due_date_complete" (no mention of "action_archived_card").

How can system B figure out that the card was archived just from parsing the content of the JSON given by the board level webhook?

Thanks for your input.

You will actually receive two separate webhooks with two separate actions: one for the due date completion and one for the archival.

@Oscar Triscon You are very right! thank you so much! I was monitoring the webhooks via webhookinbox as my setup is not yet complete and did not notice there were 2 answers for my one action. Thanks again!
