Outgoing Webhook

Outgoing Webhook can process any mentions to a bot account. You can set an Outgoing Webhook URL to your bot account for a specified topic.

  1. Go to the page for editing a topic and create a bot with any ID and name, then set the Outgoing Webhook URL to the “bot”. We support basic authentication (e.g., http://user:password@example.com/)
  2. In the topic for which you’ve created a bot, you can mention the bot like this: “@bot+ hello, bot.” A “+“sign after the account name indicates that the account is a bot.
  3. POST request to submit the following data to specified Outgoing Webhook URL. GET request BODY to fetch data in JSON format.
  4. If you want to post a message in the same topic, return JSON response. See Samples.
