We’re excited to announce a new feature for Connect apps - webhook trace header.
To trace the origin of a webhook, Connect apps can attach the
X-Atlassian-Webhook-Trace HTTP header with a value consisting of a string of up to 255 printable ASCII characters to a REST API request.
The header and its value is then attached to every webhook sent from Jira for the REST API request.
You can use the webhook trace header to, for example:
- Differentiate between webhooks triggered by various REST API requests.
- Track a webhook’s delivery.
- Attach other data for use when a webhook arrives.
