Make a POST API call to this endpoint to trigger a webhook to be sent to your previously configured callback URL.  Note that unlike many other POST calls, there is no payload required for this call.

Example data will be sent to your callback URL if it has been set up. The response for this test call will echo that from your callback URL. If a subscription hasn't been set up, you'll receive an error when calling this endpoint.
