Discord works by configuring webhooks that receive data. Every time the webhook is called, the data will be posted to a channel in your Discord.

Getting started

This guide assumes you've followed our Getting Started documentation to know where you can configure your notifications.

Create a Discord Webhook

First, you'll need to create a webhook on your Discord server. Discord's official documentation explains in detail how to do so.

The short version is: go to the Server Settings, click webhooks in the menu on the left and create a webhook.

If you want to add an icon to the hook itself, you can find example Oh Dear logos on our site.

Add the webhook to Oh Dear

Now that you've created the webhook, copy/paste the URL in our notification settings. Next up, determine which events should be sent and you're done.

Oh Dear Discord settings

You determine the channel that it gets posted to entirely from your Discord account.

For more details, see the official Discord documentation on webhooks.

Once added, your notifications will look like this in Discord.
