Question

Configuring webhooks for Monitoring Resource Alerts?

From what I can see, when creating a ‘Resource Alert’ you can only specify email or Slack as destinations.

I would like to be able to use a web hook, since our communications platform is Discord. I was even hopeful for a couple of seconds that even if not currently available it was coming soon, but that blog entry is from 2017.

Using emails isn’t great, since we can’t even direct the emails to be a dedicated alerting email address, since it seems it is limited to account email addresses only.

Did I miss the options promised back in 2017 or is are the monitoring alerts still limited to account emails and Slack?

Hey @ajmas,

Indeed you are correct, webhooks are not available as a destination for the monitoring service.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

But for the time being, what you could do is use the DigitalOcean API and get the monitoring information for your Droplets that way so you could create custom logic on how to handle that:

Hope that helps!
