GeoEvent vs Webhook Service

I was reviewing a dev blog on Webhooks from last spring, and I was curious why they do not suggest using GeoEvent as a possible Webhook service? (Webhooks – Don’t call us, we’ll call you ) It seemed like from my understanding GeoEvent functions a lot like most webhook services, where you have a payload server waiting on an event and then your server will consume that event for use.


We are looking at applying webhook services to some of our existing scripted processes, like sending emails from Survey 123, and we already have GeoEvent Server setup. Has anyone else had any experience with this? Is there a benefit to using a 3rd party webhook service over GeoEvent?
