Better Outgoing Webhook Options


#1

Summary

Is there a better way to have outgoing webhooks for a bot in each channel without having to make a webhook for each channel?

I have a chatbot setup that uses google cloud functions and it works great however I have to setup a outgoing webhook function in each room I want it to work in. Is there a better way to do this? Would I just have to do websockets or something?

Thanks

Outbound webhooks need either a channel or trigger words to work. Once a post goes to that channel or a post is detected with the trigger word it will call the webhook. Another solution is to use slash commands. These will work across channels just like outbound webhook trigger words. You can read more about these in our Integration Guide

We also have a more in-depth developer toolkit under active development.
