How does the "Authorization" header sent by the pipedrive webhook work?

I would like to use pipedrive’s webhook funcionality. In my tests i noticed that the header sent by the pipedrive webhook has the key “Authorization” with a value that uses the “Basic” notation, like:
“Authorization: Basic [value]”.

What is this value sent in the “Authorization” header? I would like to send the “Authorization” with an “Api-Key”, like:
“Authorization: Api-Key [value]”
Is that not possible?

Thank you in advance :smiley:

Hi @Thais_Damasio

As you already noticed, you can provide username/password with Webhooks, in that case Webhooks service will send these Basic Authentication credentials in the header of every HTTP request

Hence, you can’t pass your own Authorization header at the moment.


I’m sorry, I didn’t pay attention to the information correctly haha
Thank you very much for the answer :smiley:
