Best practices on how to update a case from the Court immediately to get latest case information?

Step 1: Get the case ids from the Webhooks for Scheduled Search or Search API.
Step 2: Specify the case_id to update a case from the Court.
  • UniCourt will immediately trigger an update to fetch the latest case information from the Court and notify the Client's endpoint whether the case has updates or not.
Step 3: On receiving this webhook call, a Case API call will give you the complete and latest case information.
  • On following this practice a Client can avoid making use of multiple Case API calls to figure out if a case has updates or not, and only make Case API calls for cases that have updates as notified by Update Case Completion Webhook.
