Adding a Webhook

Updated

You can use a webhook to send alerts from the Command Center to a third-party application. You can also configure alerts to send messages to the third-party applications. For example, you can configure the webhook receiver alerts on Microsoft Teams and Slack applications.

Note: Only tenant administrators and MSP administrators can add webhooks.

Before You Begin

You must have the URL for the webhook that is provided by the third-party application.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation pane, go to Manage > System.

    The System page appears.

  2. Click Webhooks tile.

    The Webhooks page appears.

  3. In the upper-right area of the page, click Add.

    The Add webhook page appears.

  4. In the Name box, enter a name for the webhook.

  5. In the URL box, enter the URL that is provided by the third-party application.

  6. To secure the alerts, from the Authentication list, select Secret HMAC, and then enter a secret key.

    The secret HMAC key secures the transfer of the alert. The key must be 8,000 or fewer characters. When the alert is transferred, the secret key generates a digest, which is verified by the receiving server.

6. Click Add.
