I want to send the form data to an external URL using webhook. Is there an option for a HandshakeKey which can be sent in the parameter?

    Here's how you can setup Webhook with Jotform: How to Setup Webhook with Jotform. May we know what's the HandshakeKey you are referring about? Any website for us to check?

    HandshakeKey is basically a parameter which is sent with the POST request that is made to the webhook URL.

    So basically I need a parameter which the user can enter while creataing a Jotform, that will be automatically sent with every POST request made to the webhook URL.

    Hi Gaurav,

    Unfortunately, we do not have HandShake Key but we do have API Key. http://www.jotform.com/help/253-How-to-Create-Jotform-API-Key. Check out our API Documentation for more info. http://api.jotform.com

    I think HandShake Key is optional that's why it was not added on the panel. The Webhook URL should work without it.

    Thank you!
