Rails 4 Payola Stripe webhook insert into table when invoice paid

I am trying to setup a webhook with the Payola gem to insert data into a table when invoice payment is successful (ie the event

invoice.payment_succeeded
. For some reason, this does not work, but a similar event to send email when invoice is created works. This is the code i have in my
payola.rb
initialization file:

Payola.configure do |config|

Payola.secret_key =Rails.application.secrets.payola_secret_key
Payola.publishable_key = Rails.application.secrets.payola_publishable_key

config.send_email_for :receipt, :admin_receipt
Payola.support_email="me@example.com"

# this webhook works and I get an email when new invoice is created
config.subscribe 'invoice.created' do |event|
subscription = Payola::Subscription.find_by(stripe_id: event.data.object.subscription)
user=User.find(subscription.owner_id)
UserMailer.invoicecreated_email(user).deliver_now
end
# this webhook is supposed to create a new PaymentHistory record and send an email, but none of these actions is performed after invoice is paid.
config.subscribe 'invoice.payment_succeeded' do |event|
subscription = Payola::Subscription.find_by(stripe_id: event.data.object.subscription)
#subscription = Payola::Subscription.find_by(stripe_id: event.data.object.lines.data[0].id)
user=User.find(subscription.owner_id)
subscription.fail_payment_date1 = nil
subscription.fail_payment_date2 = nil
subscription.update
PayolaPaymentHistory.create(owner_id: user.id, subscription_id: subscription.id,
payment_date: Time.at(event.data.object.date).to_date,amount: event.data.object.amount_due,currency: event.data.object.currency,
date_start: Time.at(event.data.object.lines.data[0].period.start).to_date,
date_end: Time.at(event.data.object.lines.data[0].period.end).to_date,
description: 'Monthly payment')
UserMailer.successpayment_email(user).deliver_now
end
end


What am I missing?

Answer

Try trimming the block down to this until we get something simple running:

config.subscribe 'invoice.payment_succeeded' do |event|
  raise 'Yes the invoice.payment_succeeded webhook is running!'
end

Stop the Rails server and stop Spring with bin/spring stop to ensure the payola.rb initializer changes are picked up (try to stop Spring each time the payola.rb initializer changes).

Make a test payment and see if the error message above is raised in your logs and/or rails server output. Please report back with what you find out.
