This virtual connection types provides an interface to up to 64 outgoing webhook targets. By using these targets, you can trigger outgoing HTTP calls and pass data to the server.


On the Targets tab, double-click a target to edit its settings:

  • Method: BTConnect supports the following methods/protocols for the outgoing HTTP call:
    • Raw requests:
      • HTTP GET
      • HTTP POST (application/x-www-form-urlencoded)
      • HTTP POST (multipart/form-data)
      • HTTP POST (raw)
      • HTTP PUT
    • Slack
    • Microsoft Teams
    • Mattermost
  • Auth User and Auth Password: Enter optional credentials used for HTTP Basic authentication.
  • Query Parameters (HTTP GET and HTTP POST urlencoded or form-data): Enter pairs of keys and values to be used as query parameters. Use the cursor-down key to add additional rows to the table.
  • Content Type (HTTP POST raw and HTTP PUT): Select value for the Content-Type header of the HTTP request, or enter it manually in the text field next to the dropdown box. When using application/json, the body must be a valid JSON document.
  • Destination (Mattermost only): Enter an optional channel or @user name to send to; this must be enabled in the Webhook configuration in Mattermost, otherwise the message will be sent to the default channel set for the Webhook.
  • Payload (HTTP POST raw, HTTP PUT, Slack, Teams, Mattermost): Enter value for the HTTP body, or the message text (for Slack, Teams and Mattermost).

Query parameters and payload (including all string parts of a JSON document when using application/json content) can contain any of the variables available for notification connections.

For HTTP POST (application/x-www-form-urlencoded) only, files can be uploaded by entering file:<local filename> as a parameter value. The filename may contain variables as well.

The settings of a target can be duplicated to another target by using the Copy/Paste commands from the context menu.


Each notification target is represented by a write-only string parameter target/<number>.

When using the Protocol Converter to trigger the target, other parameter types than string will be automatically converted.
