Create a webhook secret

Creates a secret to be used in legacy webhooks for a merchant account or payout account.

Set up a webhook secret for additional security. After you create a secret, each webhook includes a header containing a signature. You can use the signature to verify that all data received is authentic.

For a tutorial about configuring and using webhooks, see Configuring legacy webhooks in Guides.
