Webhook setup can be found in the Settings section of your Elastio tenant. Using a webhook you can set up notifications through any third-party alerting system of your choice.
Please note: The currently release webhook version is V0, which means that there might be some breaking changes in the webhook payloads that you will have to follow up on. Starting with V1, there aren’t any breaking changes expected anymore.
