Client side app receive webhook notification

I would like to execute a simple script based on a comment_created event. I have created a webhook which fires correctly to a request.bin. I’ve reviewed the app and webhook documentation several times, but I’m not entirely clear if I have to host my own server-side app to receive the webhook notification and then execute the script, or can I have a client-side app hosted in JIRA execute the script? I would like to avoid maintaining a separate hosting environment and the script I want to execute can be maintained client-side.

Hi @JimmyLin,
The webhook will require a server side component in your app. If it is a Connect app, then this will require you to host it, but if it is a Forge app Atlassian will host and run your script. To sign up to the Forge beta program, visit
