Using a Zapier Custom Request Webhook with JSON Web Tokens

Using a Zapier Custom Request Webhook with JSON Web Tokens

will be helpful for those in need My experience authenticating with APIs has been using the simple API key method. As such I first read your question and didn't fully understand. I decided to do some research and hopefully learn something along the way, and I certainly did. I share my findings and answer below:
For starters I began reading into JSON Web Tokens(JWT) which lead me to the JWT website, which was an excellent resource. It very clearly spells out the components that make up a JWT and how they need to be formatted, I would highly recommend having a look.
code :
import hashlib
import hmac
import requests
from base64 import urlsafe_b64encode

def base64url_encode(payload):
  if not isinstance(payload, bytes):
    payload = payload.encode('utf-8')
  encode = urlsafe_b64encode(payload)
  return encode.decode('utf-8').rstrip('=')

def generate_JWT(header, payload, secret):

  encoded_header = base64url_encode(header)
  encoded_payload = base64url_encode(payload)

  signature = hmac.new(secret,
                      encoded_header + "." + encoded_payload, 
  encoded_signature = base64url_encode(signature.digest())

  return encoded_header + "." + encoded_payload + "." + encoded_signature

def get_request(url, jwt):

  headers = {
    "Authorization" : "Bearer " + jwt

  result = requests.get(url, headers=headers)
  return result

secret = "yoursecrettoken"
header = '{"alg":"HS256","typ":"JWT"}'
payload = '{"sub":"1234567890","name":"John Doe","iat":1516239022}'
jwt = generate_JWT(header, payload, secret)

response = get_request("https://SomeApiEndpoint.com/api/", jwt)

I wish did fix the issue. David here, from the Zapier Platform team.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but this isn't something we currently support in our webhooks app. If the proxy server isn't an option, it might be possible to write a custom CLI app to catch your hooks. It has access to the incoming header and could copy that information into the body. The tricky part of that is that you no longer have the benefit of a single URL to throw hooks at - each zaps broadcasts its url when it's turned on. Success would depend on being able to capture that broadcast somewhere and adjust your data accordingly.

With these it helps I finally found it out by myself. I have to return one JSON, which includes everything. It's also not possible to echo anything at the same time as this would result in the output of just one string with all the values in it (like I had it before).
So something like this does the job:
code :
if (!isset($returnValue)) {
  $returnValue = new stdClass();
  $returnValue->order_id = $orderID;
  $returnValue->result_message = $resultMessage;

I think the issue was by ths following , I have created an HTML form that sends an HTTP POST to a Zapier webhook. The code works great when I embed the POST action in HTML:
code :
var data = {
            message : 'test stack overflow',
            contact : 'test'
        type : 'POST',
        url : 'https://hooks.zapier.com/hooks/catch/2689457/xiooqx/',  
        data: JSON.stringify(data),
        success:function (data) {
        error: function(xhr, status, error) {
        // handle error

around this issue David here, from the Zapier Platform team. Great question!
Airtable handles request from Zapier a little differently than normal API requests. If you can, we recommend using the official Zapier app, since we take care of all that for you. If you don't do that, you've got two options:
