How to get Plex Webhooks working with IFTTT?

To trigger an Event

Make a POST or GET web request to:

https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/{event}/with/key/[PRIVATE_KEY]

With an optional JSON body of:

{ "value1" : "", "value2" : "", "value3" : "" }

The data is completely optional, and you can also pass value1, value2, and value3 as query parameters or form variables. This content will be passed on to the Action in your Recipe.

The immediate problem is that it seems the event Plex passes along is only in the Webhook payload and unless there's a dynamic variable for passing it via the URL @ app.plex.tv/desktop#!/account/webhooks, this seems like a dead end.

At minimum Plex needs to incorporate the ability to generate more appropriate Webhook calls it looks like.
