Ghost Webhook - HTTP Basic Authentication


Is there any way we can set headers to the webhook target URL?

or can we use HTTP Basic authentication like following


My requirement is to use Parse Cloud Function as the webhook target URL.

There is no way right now to set custom headers on webhook requests.

Have you tried configuring a webhook URL containing a user/password? Running a quick test locally showed that the webhook request will be sent out with the correct Authorization: Basic xxxxx header

@Kevin I have tried with (username:password@url) my live Ghost publish but I did not get my rest API triggered by Ghost.

  • But when I test the API with Postman (with Basic Auth enabled & No headers present) it triggered.
  • Also when I test the Ghost webhook with service (of course it is a normal rest API) it works too.

That’s why I wanted to clarify by posting on the forum.
