Teams - WebHooks

WebHooks are automated messages sent from apps when something happens. They have a message—or payload— and are sent to a unique URL; named WebHook URL. This article will serve to assist with sending WebHook notifications to a Microsoft Teams channel.
 
Before setting up notifications to Teams, please read over our Alerts article to learn basic concepts and useful tips.
 
In order to set up WebHook notifications to Teams, you will need:
 
  • A team created and channel (within the team) that you want messages to arrive in.
  • Admin or super-admin user role within Hudu.

    At any time, you can come back to the Hudu admin area >> Alerts >> edit specific alert to make changes to the alert.

 

Guides

  • Navigate to your Hudu admin area >> Alerts.
  • Click (( + New Alert )).

    • Select the expiration type from the choices and complete the required fields (see Alerts for more information).
    • Click Configure WebHook and obtain the required WebHook URL from Teams.
    • Provide payload delivery information in the WebHook payload field (must be valid JSON format).

WebHook Payloads

In order to have a message generated in Microsoft Teams, you will need to deliver a payload. A payload is a piece of essential information in a data block that you send to or receive from the server when making API requests. The payload must be sent or received in JSON format.
 
Here are some examples of WebHook payloads:
 
Expirations
{"text": "There are *$EXPIRATIONS_COUNT* expirations expiring within *$TRIGGER_DAYS* days. View: [$EXPIRATIONS_HUDU_URL]($EXPIRATIONS_HUDU_URL)"}
Websites
{"text": "*$WEBSITE_NAME* appears to be down. View: [$WEBSITE_HUDU_URL]($WEBSITE_HUDU_URL)"}
Records
{"text": "*$RECORD_NAME* [*$RECORD_TYPE*] has been *$ACTIONd*. View: [Link to Hudu]($HUDU_URL)"}

 

Testing WebHooks

  • Navigate to your Hudu admin area >> Alerts and find your created alert from the list.
  • Click on Test WebHook.

    We are only testing your connection and payload, not your variables; sample variables will be filled in.
