I am trying to set up webhooks with my Facebook Developer account (brand new to webhooks) for a Biz Facebook Page. Facebook requires the webhook to be validated and I cannot figure out how to do that in Zapier. Here is what Facebook is wanting 

Validating Verification Requests

Whenever your endpoint receives a verification request, it must:

  • Verify that the hub.verify_token value matches the string you set in the Verify Token field when you configure the Webhooks product in your App Dashboard (you haven't set up this token string yet).
  • Respond with the hub.challenge value.

I can see the test data come through on my zap but cant figure out how to move forward without verification.

Just wanted to follow up here to clarify that the Webhooks by Zapier app only supports basic authentication

To handle the verification requests it would be better to build a custom integration on our Developer platform. It’s free to do so and you can find out more details in our documentation here: https://platform.zapier.com/docs/zapier-intro :)

Hi @Erica 

Unfortunately, Zapier Webhooks currently doesn’t support this capability.

@Troy Tessalone thanks for your response. Is there no known workaround?
