subscription.created

Occurs when a subscription is created. Paddle automatically creates subscriptions for recurring items when automatically-collected transactions are completed, or when manually-collected transactions are billed.

subscription.trialing or subscription.activated typically follow.

Payload includes the complete subscription entity, except management_urls. Subscription management links are temporary, so they're not included. Get a subscription using the API to get management links for a subscription.

It also includes a transaction_id field, which contains the Paddle ID of the completed or billed transaction that caused Paddle to create this subscription. You can use this match the created subscription with related transaction events as part of provisioning. Other subscription events do not include this field, and it is not returned by the API when working with subscription entities.
