REST Based Notifications

Jiri Tobolka

One of the newest features of our Platform is REST Based Notifications. Till today we had supported other notification methods like email, Chatter or Twilio, but now we can pass a custom payload to your REST API.

Now, imagine a situation. You have your own company messaging system that you want to leverage. Or you want to send some information from GoodData to your System. This makes a lot of sense when talking about integration use cases, right? Let’s say you have the API in your system and need to send some payload (i.e. “Data has been loaded for Project XYZ” or “Project Status : OK”). Your API will get this payload and do something based on the value.

Our latest capability allow you to leverage all features you had till today plus sending the information to any REST resource. How does it work? Simple. For technical information please check out these articles.
