How to Configure Webhooks for PRTG Notifications to Slack and Microsoft Teams

To communicate with your messaging application, PRTG needs an address to send the notification information to. This address is the URL of the webhook that you need to provide in the Slack or Microsoft Teams notification setup in PRTG under Setup | Account Settings | Notifications.

The webhook URL is created upon request by your messaging application. Go to your Slack or Teams workspace and create a webhook for your channel.

How to Create a Webhook for Slack

  1. In your Slack app, go to the settings page and follow the instructions from the Slack API documentation Incoming Webhook.
  2. Copy the Slack webhook and paste it in the URL of Slack Webhook field of your Slack notification settings in PRTG.

This is what a Slack notification sent by PRTG may look like:

How to Create a Webhook for Microsoft Teams

  1. In your Microsoft Teams app, go to the More options … settings of a channel. Then follow the instructions that you find in the Microsoft Teams documentation Setting up a custom incoming webhook.
    Note: If incoming webhook is not available as connector, make sure to enable the option Allow external apps in Microsoft Teams. See Prepare your Office 365 tenant for more information.
  2. Copy the Teams webhook and paste it in the URL of the Teams Webhook field of your Teams notification settings in PRTG.

This is what a Teams notification sent by PRTG may look like:

This looks nice, any chance of also supporting Webex Teams? It also has incoming webhook support (see https://bit.ly/2LMAdvY) so should be fairly similar.

Hi there,

You can use the "HTTP Action" in the Notifications under "Setup > Account Settigns > Notifications" for almost all HTTP-APIs. I don't see a reason why you wouldn't be able to send a notification to Cisco Webex as the Calls are simple HTTP Calls.

Best regards.
