Slack integration: JSON body text doesn't work


By going to slack integration on Dynatrace there's a title field. In slack webhook creation page, there are clear instructions that body message should be sent in two ways:

You have two options for sending data to the Webhook URL above:

  • Send a JSON string as the payload parameter in a POST request
  • Send a JSON string as the body of a POST request

I've tried both, and both outputs json as plain text in slack channel. Why? I want to have beautiful post like sentry has for example.


In the end what we have is plain text notifications which is not good at all, as you don't use main slack feature.

Here you find a blog post about the set up configuration:


Interesting. I don't get anything similar to that. Here's what I get in specified channel, there's no description only plain text I've entered to that title field
