Google Chat Webhook




I am having issues connecting PRTG to use Webhook on Google Chat.

Is there someone who can help me with the step-by-step procedure on how to do this since PRTG does not

support XML or JSON.

Hello Dear customer,

Thank you very much for your support inquiry.

Right now it's unfortunately not yet comfortably possible to integrate Google Chat as a proper recipient system of PRTG notifications, but there should be a theoretical option for making this work though.

PRTG currently offers notifications to MS Teams and Slack. For Google Chat you will need to create a Webhook and some extensive customizing. Unfortunately, we didn't receive a lot of customer requests regarding Google Chat yet, so we can't rely on other approaches here.

First, I would suggest starting by looking into the following articles and trying to adapt the Webhook approach for Google Chat: https://blog.paessler.com/sending-notifications-via-microsoft-teams https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/80010-how-do-i-create-a-webhook-for-the-prtg-notifications-to-slack-and-microsoft-teams

A valuable debugging tool can be found after enabling PRTG's internal notification delivery log: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/55363-how-can-i-enable-notification-delivery-logging

I'm sorry that I can't offer a more satisfactory answer in this case. For any other questions or difficulties, we are happy to help.
