Webhooks for Microsoft Teams

Learn how to create a webhook in CoreStack and integrate it with Microsoft Teams to send alert notifications to a specified Teams group.

Overview

A webhook is a lightweight API that powers one-way data sharing triggered by certain events in a software application. They enable applications to share data and functionality with optimized use of server resources. Whenever an event occurs, a webhook allows the application to push data from the triggering event to another application in order to perform an action — such as sending an email notification/alert to a set of users.

This document will provide information on how to integrate CoreStack with Microsoft Teams using webhooks.

Pre-requisites

  1. Create a group on Microsoft Teams for receiving alert notifications.
  2. Assign members to the group accordingly.

Configuring the webhook

Login to Microsoft Teams and select the group you just created (to which the alert notifications will be sent).
