API webhooks for reactions

When developing a bot that integrates to Webex it is crucial to use the "messages" and "attachmentActions" webhooks. However, users might also click 'reactions' as a response to the chatbot. Since it it not possible to get a webhook for reactions, I highly recommend to implement that feature.

    Providing that reactsions are added to the messages API and that we get webhooks:
    You could even think about using this as a simple "voting" mechanism.
    Quote from Max in this request:

    this would enable completely new bot functions and fast user interactions. for comparison: many discord bots work via emote reactions

    I agree but think that this first requires reactions to be available via APIs. When they are, we should also have a webhook for "reactions - created"

    As we expect Webex to be used for bots/applications, being able to respond in a similar way users would is expected/needed. Thanks in advance.
