Validate Rest Hook Subscription

Hi there,

 

I’m attempting to set up a few rest hook triggers that require hook validation. I can see from a few previous posts/replies from @Zane & @ikbelkirasan that this isn’t typically possible, but the service I’m trying to work with (Keap) does support a delayed validation so I’m wondering if can be implemented in the perform.

The hook subscribe response comes back as:

{
"eventKey": "string",
"hookUrl": "string",
"key": "string",
"status": "Unverified"
}

With Header: X-Hook-Secret and a verification code as its value. Per their API reference, they say to either verify with the initial response (which I know from your previous replies is asynchronous and not possible) or to use their delayed verification endpoint:

POST to /v1/hooks/{bundle.subscribeData.key}/delayedVerify with the same X-Hook-Secret Header value and code pair.  (ref: https://developer.infusionsoft.com/docs/rest/#tag/REST-Hooks/operation/verify_a_hook_subscription_delayed).

Is this possible to implement in the perform? I’m not an expert so I don’t know how to access the header info in the subscribe data bundle or if it’s even possible, or if it’s allowed to make a separate request in the perform, etc.

Would really love to be able to implement some rest hooks for our needs, so any advice is much appreciated!
