Add wallet webhook


Add a webhook that will result in an HTTP callback at the specified URL from BitGo when events are triggered. There is a limit of 10 webhooks of each type per wallet.

Types of wallet webhooks available:

  1. Transfer webhooks will fire on any transfer on the wallet.
  2. Pending approval webhooks will fire when an event triggers policy on the wallet (e.g send transaction, user change, policy change, pending approval updated).
  3. (Ripple, ETH only) Address confirmation webhooks will fire when an address has been initialized on the wallet.

Note that an unconfirmed webhook notification won't be triggered if a transaction is confirmed on chain immediately after it is sent, or if is an RBF transaction. API users are not supposed to expect 'unconfirmed' notifications in these cases.
