Notify

Configure global notifiers that can be used by any Service.

We are running Shoutrrr 0.6, which supports sending notifications to the following services below.

The ‘URL Fields’ go under url_fields and ‘Query/Param Props’ go under params.

Below I have used capitals in some key naming for better readability (ignore that Argus will convert that to lower-case as it shouldn’t break anything).

The lines prefixed with a # are optional vars that aren’t required.

The config for each of these is layed out in the format of

notify:
  ...
  # As many of these (below) as you like, just ensure they have unique ID's
  EXAMPLE_NOTIFY_ID:
    type: shoutrrr
    options:
#     delay: AhBmCs                             # Time to wait when a new release is found before sending this message
#     max_tries: 3                              # Maximum number of times to try sending this message until a send is successful
#     message: >-                               # Message template
#       <{{ service_url }}|{{ service_id }}> -
#       {{ version }} released{% if web_url %}
#       (<{{ web_url }}|changelog>){% endif %}
    url_fields: {}
    params: {}

where the vars available in options stay the same every time (so they’ll be ommitted below).

message templating

The message used in the Notify messages can be customised with Django-style templating courtesy of pongo2.

The default message template is <{{ service_url }}|{{ service_id }}> - {{ version }} released{% if web_url %} (<{{ web_url }}|changelog>){% endif %} , which with a service_id of ’example_service’, a service_url of ’example.com’, no web_url and the version that triggered this message being ‘1.2.3’, woud trigger a message of example_service - 1.2.3 released (example_service would be a clickable link to the service_url). If the Service had a web_url defined, then ’ (changelog)’ would appear at the end, where the ‘changelog’ text would be a clickable link to that web_url.

The vars that can be used in both the title and message templates are:

  • service_id
  • service_url
  • web_url
  • version

The default Slack message format assumes that when web_url is defined, it is a link to the services changelog. Then, in any notifications by Argus about that service, you should get a clickable ‘changelog’ button that takes you to that web_url.

For further guidance and other helpful examples on the templating used, start by looking here.

Either a Webhook, or the Slack Bot API can be used.

To get a token for a Bot:

  • Create an App for your bot with Slacks ‘Creating an app’ guide.
  • Install the App into your workspace (Slack docs).
  • From Apps, select your App and go to ‘OAuth & Permissions’
  • Copy the ‘Bot User OAuth Token’
  • e.g. `xoxb-012345678901-0123456789012-phq24qfrhqnm2mtmz54dwkop

  • To get a token, talk to the botfather.

    • @channel-name can only be used for public channels. The name can be found by going to Channel info, just replace the t.me/ prefix with an @.
    • chat_id is required for private channels/group chats/private chats. To get the ID, you can forward a message (from the target chat) to @UserInfoBot or @JsonDumpBot and view it at Id and message.forward_from_chat.id from those bots respectively.
