Webhook shared secret with HTTP header

Hi, I'm using a webhook that supports shared secrets, but the secret needs to be passed in via a configured http header (which IMO is the superior way to do this vs including the secret in the payload).  Is there a way to have the meraki webhook include the shared secret in a header?  Optionally, configuring the header name would be nice, but as long as I can figure out what the header name is to provide it to the receiving webhook, that would be sufficient.

 

Thanks.

You can probably use the template tools to create the request in the form you need, see...

As an example, I've used it to put authentication info into the header for Splunk integration...
