New to building plugin simple question - generate email on webhook fail

Hello, I am new to building plugins, and I want to have a plugin that is universal for my installs. I have built a simple plugin that will generate email when webhook fails. I originally added the code to the function.php, but realized after update this code gets eliminated (noob). So I build plugin. can someone tell me how can I call the website URL to make this a universal plugin? and also how to send to admin email (please see caps areas). and maybe someone can add code here that will auto retry the webhooks? :smiley:

The code doesn’t look right on here, download the file

add_action( 'gform_webhooks_post_request', function ( $response, $feed, $entry, $form ) {
    if ( is_wp_error( $response ) ) {
        $to      = 'NEED TO SEND TO ADMIN EMAIL HERE'; // Change this to your email address.
        $subject = 'Webhook failed at NEED TO DISPLAY WEBSITE HERE';
        $body    = "Webhook for entry #$entry[id] form #$form[id] failed."; //IS THIS CORRECT TO CALL THE ENTRY ID AND THE FORM ID?  I HAVE 20+ FORMS I NEED TO KNOW WHICH ONE FAILED
        wp_mail( $to, $subject, $body );
}, 10, 4 );


It looks like you’re pretty close. Try this instead:

add_action( 'gform_webhooks_post_request', function ( $response, $feed, $entry, $form ) {
	if ( is_wp_error( $response ) ) { 
		// Change this to your email address.
        $to      = 'UPDATE EMAIL'; 
        $subject = "Webhook failed at {$entry['source_url']}";
        $body    = "Webhook for entry #{$entry['id']} form #{$form['id']} failed."; 
        wp_mail( $to, $subject, $body );
}, 10, 4 );
