This document demonstrates how to post a message to an MS Teams channel using a webhook.

In MS Teams

  • Once the new channel has been created, it’s time to create an incoming webhook for it.

  • Using the three dots on the channel, choose Connectors.

  • The new page will be displayed with the available connectors to be configured for that channel. Look for Incoming Webhook and click on Configure.

Incoming webhook
  • Give a name to the incoming webhook (required) and change the icon to be displayed (optional), then click Create.

  • At the bottom of the module, a new section is displayed with the following information:

URL to be used in Nexthink

An example of the URL would be: 9e393959c4b3@13387b29-82d9-4ca5-9fa0- b7b5635742ef/IncomingWebhook/5fcc84f00dfb4ad9bbdcd94a86e53864/69227ead- 2e93-461f-91e1-f03494393957

In Nexthink

Configure the Webhook Credential

  • Click on Connectors and select the Webhook Credentials entry:

  • Fill in the page fields with the following values:
    Instance Name: <name of your credential>
    Instance URL:
    Authorization*: BASIC
    Username*: test
    Password*: test

*These fields are not necessary when configuring Incoming Webhooks. For the time being, insert the values as shown above. A “No Auth” option will be provided soon.
