We are deprecating the old headers, which means it is not a breaking change but it's recommended to update them as soon as possible.
    X-Share-Webhook-Signature becomes X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Signature
    X-Share-Webhook-Type becomes X-BuiltOn-Webhook-Type

Verify a Webhook

The Webhook has to be verified before related data on related Events are dispatched. The API tries to verify the endpoint when the Webhook is created. If the endpoint returns an HTTP status code 2XX then the Webhook is set to verified.
If an endpoint is updated, then the Webhook is not verified anymore. It is possible to manually try to verify the endpoint by doing the following request.
