Callback handler

A callback handler is an API endpoint that accepts HTTP requests from Acronis, processes them according to the specified format, sends the corresponding action to be executed by your service, and returns the operation result.

The following diagram shows a simplified flow, where a user sends an HTTP request from Acronis Cyber Platform to the third-party service using callbacks:

  • On the Acronis side, API Callback Gateway receives HTTP requests from a user and sends them to the third-party URL (a callback handler) in a specific format.

  • On the third-party system side, a callback handler receives HTTP requests from Acronis and responds in a specific format.
