Outgoing webhook or listener to all chat communications

Hello;

I am trying to figure out if it is feasible to add a webhook or listener to all public/private direct chat communications. The pipeline I want to explore is do something with all the chat messages prior to saving it into mysql db.

The team has been discussing a plugin hook system that would let you do something like this, but we haven’t started on concrete implementation as of yet. For now, if you have ideas like this, please contribute to our Uservoice forum.

If any type of pre-processing or post-processing hooks for “all content” is added, I sincerely hope there will be extra admin settings required to enable it to avoid a security and integrity nightmare :slight_smile:
