Webex Teams Notification



I am looking for any guidance on how i can use Execute HTTP Action to send a message with variables to a Cisco Webex Teams room/user. I have tested the API access with Postman successfully but am not terribly familiar with how it translates. I took the exported code and pasted it but it doesn't appear to have worked and I have no great way of identifying what PRTG thinks of it, maybe a log somewhere? Any guidance is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

POST /v1/messages HTTP/1.1 Host: api.ciscospark.com Authorization: xxxxxxx Content-Type: application/json Cache-Control: no-cache Postman-Token: a484e25d-36cf-4fe0-8575-b64466f579c6

{ "roomId" : "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", "text" : " PRTG Web Alert Notification" }

You'll need to use a PowerShell notification that uses Invoke-Webrequest, similar to this, since the HTTP notifications don't support the content type to be configured (it's always plain/text) :)

Kind regards,
