For any user willing to customize the notifications or integrate them into their own apps (or 3rd party apps), web-hook alert contacts is one of the best options.
Yet, it was only supporting GET requests and POST support was frequently requested. And, here it comes.
It is now possible to receive the web-hook requests as POST and it supports both:
- standard POST (application/x-www-form-urlencoded)
- or JSON (application/json)
For both options, the parameters to be posted need to be defined in JSON and the custom variables provided (like *monitorURL*, *monitorFriendlyName*, etc.) can all be used as POST values.
