GET account_activity/all/webhooks

Returns all environments, webhook URLs and their statuses for the authenticating app. Currently, only one webhook URL can be registered to each environment.

We mark a URL as invalid if it fails the daily validation check. In order to re-enable the URL, call the update endpoint.
