Hi Team,

This is with regards to the new Payments apps platform. I represent a payment provider who is currently in the process of integrating with this new payments platform. 

My query is on the hmac authentication process. In the verification section (OAuth based - https://shopify.dev/apps/auth/oauth#verification), the following sample is given:-


Is the 'secret' key's value the same as the 'API secret key' assigned to us?
