Conferencing push notifications

Our Conferencing Services feature has been updated to add the ability to subscribe to notifications when conferencing details are created on an event.

Conferencing creation is an asyncronous process that happens after the initial API call to create or update the calendar event, and by using these notifications, you can avoid having to poll our API waiting for the conferencing URL to be generated.

By adding a new subscriptions attribute to an event, you can subscribe your webhook URL to events by referencing a new interaction type of conferencing_assigned.

{
  "event_id": "qwhpaprqzzgklulmpxsb",
  "summary": "Virtual interview",
  "start": "2020-07-21T15:30:00Z",
  "end": "2020-07-21T16:00:00Z",
  "conferencing": {
    "profile_id": "default"
  },
  "subscriptions": [
    {
      "type": "webhook",
      "uri": "https://example.com/notification",
      "interactions": [
        {
          "type": "conferencing_assigned"
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}

As soon as conferencing details have been created for your event, we'll POST to your URL with the full event details, so you don't need to make follow-up requests to our API at all.
