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: https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general.

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