Hi ArchivesSpace community,
We're thinking of a few projects that could benefit from something like a webhook or a trigger when specific records are updated. For example, when an archival object record is edited, it could trigger a custom script that could update metadata in our digital asset management system. Or when a record is unpublished, it could trigger a custom script that would add an event record.

I haven't found any indication that such functionality exists, but I'm not an expert, so I'm asking. If it doesn't exist, is this something you think your institution might be able to use as well? If you are a developer, do you think it would be difficult or easy to add this to the product, either as an enhancement or as a plugin just for our site?

Any thoughts would be welcome!
