Generic webhook limitation

Issue Summary


I am currently trying redash to see if would be helpful for us. I am currently looking at the alert system and see some limitations:

  1. The slack option doesn’t have the channel option, all I can configure is the name and the webhook URL. All documentation are saying we can configure more, but I don’t have it available. Is it an issue in redash 11.0.0?

  2. I am trying to see if I can call some custom webhook - I would like to be able to send some custom data in the headers, but I don’t see this possibility. Is it something possible?

Technical details:

  • Redash Version: 11.0.0
  • Browser/OS: ran though the docker container you created
  • How did you install Redash: Via the developer guide

Welcome to the forum!

Question 1: you configure the applicable channel within Slack’s admin panel, not Redash.
Question 2: Redash supports generic webhook targets. If you need to include custom headers you can either add a custom alert destination or modify directly to include whatever you need :smiley:
