Webhook details

For example the above will create the DevOps Webhook, that is using the Webhook connection to POST information to the Webhook endpoint.

You can optionally add a specific request path for the POST, custom HTTP headers and body payload. Moreover, you can optionally disable SSL certificate verification.

Template variables 

In Request path, HTTP Headers and Body payload fields there is a possibility of using template variables, which will be translated to alert specific fields. In order to use template variables you have to use this format: {{VARIABLE}}, i.e. {{LEVEL}}.

Supported template variables:

  • LEVEL - alert level (INFO, LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, CRITICAL).
  • CATEGORY - alert category (Infrastructure, Consumers, Kafka Connect, Topics, Producers).
  • INSTANCE - (broker url / topic name etc.).
  • SUMMARY - alert summary - same content we can see in Alert Events tab.
  • ID - alert global id (i.e. 1000 for BrokerStatus alert).
  • CREDS - CREDS[0] etc. - variables specified in connection’s Credentials as a list of values separated by comma.

An example 

If for example you create a rule to send infrastructure notifications to Webhook, then the moment a Broker becomes offline, an HTTP POST will be made to the Webhook endpoint.
