How to enable WebHook Notifications

RapidSpike supports multiple ways of configuring notifications. One of these it to send a HTTP POST to a WebHook when a configured rule generates a notification.

Add and Configure Webhooks

In order to configure WebHook notifications, first click your user name in the top right hand corner in order to open the Account Menu. From this click on Settings to be taken to the Account Settings screen.

On the Integrations tab in the Webhook Integration section, add your WebHook URL and a label. As you can add multiple WebHooks, the label allows you to identify each one later on when adding them to your Notification Rules.

Webhook Intergrations

Once added, you will now have WebHooks available as an option in Delivery Methods.
