Custom Webhooks Parameters
Sematext supports sending notifications to a custom Webhook. When configuring the Webhook a number of variables can be used to customize the information sent from Sematext to the destination of your choice.
The following variables are supported:
- $webHookName - the name of the webhook

- $applicationToken - App token IMPORTANT: Anyone with access to your App token can access data in your App. Use $applicationToken only if you are sure there is no risk of the token getting compromised.
