    Add a Webhook "Handshake Key" for added security

    Asked by bart2801 on March 16, 2016 at 06:22 PM

    To make the Webhook more secure you want to make sure the webhook is being called by JotForm only. When you add a "Handshake Key" field to the Webhook definition form and post the value of this Handshake Key as extra parameter to the form, the receiving script can test for the correct value of this Handshake Key. I know that Wufoo offers this with its webhook for extra security.

    We do not have HandShake Key but we do have API Key which you can create by following this guide: How to Create Jotform API Key. For more information, you can also check out our API Documentation. http://api.jotform.com 

    Nonetheless, I have added your suggestion for a HandShake Key as a feature request. We will let you know on this thread if there are any updates.
