Retry a webhook event


Our recently deployed Developer Console includes the ability to reactivate a failed webhook, however that requires the developer to log into the console to fire the webhook. By using the /retry_webhook endpoint, developers can reactivate a failed webhook without logging into the console as long as the event is delivered successfully.


The request body at this endpoint is the header_msg JSON object.

Only authsignature header is required for this request.
