I have this settings for destination:

And this for alert:

Please help, how to solve this

Hi @Vinnyard,

You need to put the -d body inside the action message since it’s expecting it in that format: { “text”: “…” }

And how to do that? As i understood, query params from destination and message body will be merged somewhere, where i have no controll


You can take look at the reply here Mattermost webhook integration - #2 by mihirsoni

In a gist, when you create an Action, inside message you should provide format in a way destination expect.

In case of your use case, you would put below in message as part of Action message.

‘{“text”: “Hello, this is some text\nThis is more text”, “chat_id”:“12345”}’

Thank you very much )))
It’s working )) It’s ALIVE ))
