As well as sending alerts via email, Slack, and HipChat; SpeedCurve also supports sending alerts to any webhook. Follow the steps below to set up alerts to your webhooks.

  1. In the "Alerts" section of your SpeedCurve settings, click the Add Webhook button and enter the URL of your webhook.

  2. For each performance budget, make sure that you have the "Send alerts for this budget" checkbox checked.

That's it! Your webhook will receive a POST request for each performance budget alert.

Webhook payload details

Each performance budget alert will be sent as a separate payload to your webhook. The payload will be a HTTP POST request, where the request body is a JSON-encoded string. See below for the JSON schema.
