Get Signed Event Webhook's Public Key
Base url: https://api.sendgrid.com
This endpoint allows you to retrieve the public key for a single Event Webhook by ID.
If you do not pass a webhook ID to this endpoint, it will return the public key for your oldest webhook by
created_date. This means the default key returned by this endpoint when no ID is provided will be for the first webhook you created. This functionality allows customers who do not have multiple webhooks to use this endpoint to retrieve their only webhook's public key, even if they do not supply an ID. If you have multiple webhooks, you can retrieve their IDs using the Get All Event Webhooks endpoint.
Once you have enabled signature verification for a webhook, you will need the public key provided to verify the signatures on requests coming from Twilio SendGrid. You can use the webhook ID to enable or disable signature verification with the endpoint dedicated for that operation.
For more information about cryptographically signing the Event Webhook, see Getting Started with the Event Webhook Security Features.
