GChat and Webhooks

Curious if anyone has tried using GChat with Shotgun Webhooks.

I’m hoping to find a better way to notify folks who are remote and are already used to controlling how and when they are informed of events in production.

We’re looking into doing the same. Seems a great fit! With custom entities, we can drive some complicated processes with a bot.

One thought: this is great for visibility of processes. For instance, we have AMIs for delivery, where currently the program outputs its status in a terminal window and the operator can watch it.
Having this information served to the entire team instantly is very exciting.

I’m a bit concerned that there might be too many GChat rooms generated by this approach – it’s a Slack Cacophony Trap.

Haha hadn’t heard of that, but it makes sense, yeah. We’re probably small enough to escape that, but it sounds like a real concern still.
The problem is partly that there is no hierarchy to the rooms, so a big flat list of tens/hundreds of rooms would become unwieldy.
