Return Response to Webhook Post

Hi everyone,

I would like to know if it's possible to return a response to the webhook POST request from the script that receives the webhook call.

My script receives the CM webhook post, processes it and syncs the CM data to a third party app. Naturally during this process things can go wrong - for example the third party app's database is temporarily inaccessible - and I would like to be able to return response to the CM webhook, so that CM knows the webhook call failed and should be retried.

My script's in PHP and I tried using

header('HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error', true, 500);



but neither seems to work (the webhook post is not rescheduled and tried again).

The documentation doesn't have any information on this topic.

Many thanks in advance.
