How to test a webhook notification channel that works with POST?

Webhooks that use POST require some data (usually json) to be sent along. The “Send Test” feature does not provide a way of sending such data.

The obvious workaround is to set up a temporary alert that’s sure to fire and see if it actually does, but shouldn’t there be a better way of doing this?

Good idea. Could you open a feature request in the GitHub repo. Thanks.

I just setup a temporary alert when I was testing. Didn’t even think about using the “Send Test” button.
