Jira does not support this. Ideally, this is done by sanding a crypto/secure-hash of the payload in the request headers. Atlassian should add this to their product roadmap. (You can try to review HTTP headers Jira is sending.)

In the absence of it.

  • At a minimum, you should have a unique address (request path).
  • Open a support ticket ti Jira and ask for their source IP addresses/range Validate it.

Hello @Abhinand Harshetty ,

I am not sure I have a correct understanding of what you are asking.

However, if you want to check whether or not a Webhook is correctly triggered, you can use or to verify this:

  1. Use either or to create the callback url you will use for the test
  2. Create an exact copy of the Webhook you want to verify, with the only difference that in here you will configure the callback url created in step #1 
  3. Trigger the event that is supposed to fire the Webhook and see if the request is correctly received (in or depending on what you used)


If this is not what you were trying to do, please provide more details.



He means anyone can call the endpoint thus mess up with the data, how to verify the request is genuine?
