Configuring incoming webhook


What is the purpose of lock to this channel when configuring an incoming webhook?


Hi @ovim,

It means that if it’s enabled, then the incoming webhook can only post to the channel that you selected.


@amy.blais and if it is unchecked, does it go to multiple channels? If so, how?


Hi @ovim,

Looking at our documentation it seems that you can only post to one channel at a time, so this would be a good Feature Request:

A workaround would be to use slash commands which can be used in multiple channels.


I have submitted the feature request. I hope we can upgrade soon. Thank you for your time and advice.
