Setting Up Webhooks with Alarms

Webhooks are a way for an app to send automated information to other apps. For example, you could create an Alarm that, when triggered, would send information about the app to Slack and post a message.

To create an alert like this, first, navigate to Alarms and create a new alarm. For more information on creating alarms click here.

Next, enable Webhooks:


Then, enter a URL to tell the agent where to send the information. This is usually provided by the app you are trying to insert the information into. (Note: If you are using Slack or MS Teams, detailed guides can be found in the "Learn More" section below.)

Once we have that URL, ActivTrak will by default send a webhook with the following information (depending on your alarm):

Date and Time The exact date and time the user first accessed a specific activity. 
Computer The name of the computer pulled directly from the machine itself.
Alias The user alias assigned through the ActivTrak dashboard.
Primary Domain The main domain name of the server.
Logon Domain If the user is Active Directory domain attached, the domain name. If the users are not attached to a domain, the computer name will be shown. Google Chrome agents will not show anything.
User Friendly user name; typically First and Last. Pulled from the operating system.
Titlebar What is read in the title bar of the user's activity.
Executable The executable of the user's activity.
Description A short description of the user's activity.
Website The name of the website the user accessed.
URL The exact URL the user accessed for an activity.
Session The session ID is used by Windows to tell the difference between user sessions. You mainly only see it on Terminal Servers where there are multiple users on one computer, and Session ID 0 is almost always reserved for the System.
Duration The amount of time a user spent active in an activity.
IP The internet protocol address within the local network.


NOTE: You can also add more information by adding to the "Parameters" field.
