Introducing Webhook Signatures!
Webhook notifications are one of the most popular notifications we offer, providing users with many opportunities to customize what happens after the build.
Originally, the hook was verified using the
Authorization header value
based on the repository’s name, and the user token.
Under certain circumstances the token may be invalid for use, resulting in invalid webhook delivery.
Today we are happy to introduce a more robust and reliable verification process using private/public key signing!
The signature comes in the form of the custom
Signature HTTP header.
The old method will be removed on November 1, 2016
On November 1, 2016, the old method will be removed.
Your webhook endpoint should be updated to handle the new method, as described here.
