Step - 1 : Create Route

Route::get('send-test-webhook', [SendWebhookController::class, 'send'])->name('send-test-webhook');

Step - 2 : Create Controller

Now, we need to make one 'SendWebhookController.php' file in 'app/Http/Controllers' and simply write in this controller your send webhook logic and function.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class SendWebhookController extends Controller
    public function send(Request $request)
        $url = '';
        $data = [
            'status_code' => 200, 
            'status' => 'success',
            'message' => 'webhook send successfully',
            'extra_data' => [
                'first_name' => 'Harsukh',
                'last_name' => 'Makwana',
    	$json_array = json_encode($data);
        $curl = curl_init();
        $headers = ['Content-Type: application/json'];

        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $json_array);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
        curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 30);

        $response = curl_exec($curl);
        $http_code = curl_getinfo($curl, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);


        if ($http_code >= 200 && $http_code < 300) {
            echo "webhook send successfully.";
        } else {
            echo "webhook failed.";
