Guarana is a SAM packaged webhook debugging tool, it captures HTTP requests and saves them kindly to S3 to help you review/debug them later.

Deploying it

The easiest way to install this tool is using the server less application repository:

Important config options:

  • bucketName: the name of the bucket in which to store the webhook data
  • bucketPrefix: the prefix to be appended to object paths stored in the S3 bucket. For example, a bucketName of “bucket1” and a prefix “webhooks” will store all inbound HTTP requests under s3://bucket1/webhooks/


It allows a single lambda function to be used across multiple services

Guarana automatically pass on proxied paths to the S3 destination bucket allowing a single lambda function to be easily used for many services. For example, assuming your lambda function URL is you can use at Stripe and all its webhooks will be stored as s3:///${bucketName}/${bucketPrefix}/${year}/${month}/${day}

It captures both the request body as well as relevant metadata

For every HTTP request Guarana sees it stores two JSON objects:

  • metadata.json - containing request metadata such as the HTTP verb and headers
  • contents.json - containing the body of the HTTP request using the extension extracted from the provided content type header. If no content type is provided it will default to .txt

example metadata object:

  "path" : "/test",
  "headers" : {
    "Accept" : "*/*",
    "CloudFront-Forwarded-Proto" : "https",
    "CloudFront-Is-Desktop-Viewer" : "true",
    "CloudFront-Is-Mobile-Viewer" : "false",
    "CloudFront-Is-SmartTV-Viewer" : "false",
    "CloudFront-Is-Tablet-Viewer" : "false",
    "CloudFront-Viewer-Country" : "US",
    "content-type" : "application/x-www-form-urlencoded",
    "Host" : "",
    "User-Agent" : "curl/7.54.0",
    "Via" : "2.0 (CloudFront)",
    "X-Amz-Cf-Id" : "ZWvIxOFunW1DKIqYa20dpV1M91rOPCEOhDK5rse7EkuFEUC1pJsJlA==",
    "X-Amzn-Trace-Id" : "Root=1-5adcb614-5891de00e823dc7095af29e0",
    "X-Forwarded-For" : ",",
    "X-Forwarded-Port" : "443",
    "X-Forwarded-Proto" : "https"
  "method" : "POST",
  "functionVersion" : "$LATEST",

  "id" : "f096e2f8-4648-11e8-a17b-2308d7d30a46",
  "queryString" : null

example content object:

  "hellow" : "world",
