Webhook when branch created?

Is it possible to run a webhook when a branch is created?
I notice there are issue events so my normal workflow would be to create an issue and then create a branch which will be pulled to the local repo.

Asked question on stackoverflow and answer is
You can simply use Gitlab’s push hook and check if the commit-id of “before” is 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000

And the branch name is under “ref”

Looks like you raised a feature proposal for this functionality here:

Thanks for that :slight_smile:
