Configure a Google Chat Channel

Sysdig Monitor allows you to send alerts to Google Chat using webhook integration. For example, you can configure an alert to notify on-call personnel on Google Chat when a Kubernetes cluster in your infrastructure goes down.

  2. Create a Google Chat space you want to use for the webhook notifications.

  3. Select the space that you have created for the webhook.

  4. Click the drop-down arrow next to the name of the space, and select Manage Webhooks.

    1. Name: Specify a unique name for your webhook. For example, Sysdig.

  6. Click Save.

  7. Copy the full webhook URL.
