Unable to setup an alert channel webhook for Google Chat

  • Please describe what are you seeing:
    I am trying to setup a webhook for google chat, to be able to send our alerts to this when things go bump.

  • How does this differ from what were you expecting to see?
    I am expecting to be able to setup a webhook, but when I setup a new notification provider and test it, I get a message to say that it failed to send the test notification.

I have also tried the following to no avail:

  • Setting up as a regular webhook
  • Setting up as a slack webhook
  • Using a hardcoded custom payload

None of these actions worked, and all came back with a 500 response, as indicated in the image I uploaded.

Could you give that a try?
