How to use Bitbucket Server 5.4 webhooks with Jenkins crumbs

With version 5.4 of the Bitbucket server, Atlasian (re-)introduced the webhooks. I tried to configure a webhook to notify our Jenkins 2.83 instance but the request was refused with an "Invalid crumb" message.

Please advise how to connect the new Bitbucket server webhooks to a Jenkins 2.x instance.

Please note that the invoked Jenkins job is of type Pipeline, which executes a parameterized script from an SCM.

Here are the details of the HTTP request and response:

You can use Generic Webhook Trigger Plugin. It does not require the crumb.
