Hello guys, from the api docuation of, it is stated that to recieve webhook the `req.get('authorization') will need to be called, but calling it in Appwrite Cloud function its outputting

    at Module.default (file:///usr/local/server/src/function/src/main.js:29:48)
    at execute (/usr/local/server/src/server.js:157:48)
    at async action (/usr/local/server/src/server.js:174:13)
    at async /usr/local/server/src/server.js:10:9```

 How can this be resolved?
Appwrite developers are facing an issue with the `req.get('authorization')` function in Appwrite Cloud functions. The proper way to access the authorization header in Appwrite is through `req.headers["Authorization"]`. This method is different from Express. Check the Appwrite Functions documentation for more clarity on request handling.

The request object in Appwrite Functions is slightly different to what would normally be expected in Express, this might give a clearer idea as to what you're looking for

It looks like it's trying to get the value of the authorization header which I think is done like this

const authorization = req.headers["Authorization"];

I'm not sure if that's 100% correct as I'm trying to do it from memory but the link I sent will give a much better idea as to what you need to be doing
