I'm not sure what cause the problem and because I haven't seen embed code yet, but you may try adding after in webhook url, that makes error messages more "verbose".

I tried using the example you had above as well as some more embeds like the one below

By using as you suggested and here is the more verbose error

If I do

payload= { "username": "test_user", "avatar_url": "https://i.imgur.com/IFPMBBC.jpg", "content": "https://reddit.com/", "embeds": [ { "author": { "name": "Birdie♫", "url": "https://www.reddit.com/r/cats/", "icon_url": "https://i.imgur.com/R66g1Pe.jpg" } } ] }

The error is

I'm still unable to trace where exactly I'm going wrong with the formatting or whether it's how the requests package in Python handles it.

The Easy Guide to Discord Webhooks

What are Discord webhooks? How to create Discord webhooks? How to use Discord webhooks?

Although these are probably the most frequently asked questions about Discord webhooks, it’s hard to find answers that are thorough and clear at the same time.

Well, until now.

In this guide, we will go over the basic notions of Discord webhooks, show you how to create them, and share a few insights related to using them in real life.

Ready? Let’s start with the basics.

What is a Discord webhook?

Discord webhooks are a method for getting data posted as a message to a text channel in a Discord server.

In simple words, you can think of Discord webhooks as a radar system.

Radars can be tuned up to pick up certain data (usually airplanes flying through a piece of airspace), and send it to a screen for the operator to see.

A Discord webhook is pretty much alike. It listens for specific events, and when one takes place, the webhook picks it up and posts the data to a Discord channel for everyone to see.

These events can be nearly anything: Recently filled online forms, new rows added to Google Sheets spreadsheet, you name it.

As long as there is a webhook listening to what happens in a third-party application, the data resulting from a new event will be posted as a message in a Discord channel.

For example, let’s imagine that you work for a game development company, and keep track of game sales data on a Google Spreadsheet. A Discord webhook would be useful to automatically post new game sales data each time you add a row to that spreadsheet.

There are other uses for Discord webhooks as well, but we’ll get back to them later on, as there are easier and more convenient ways to automatically post data to Discord.

How to create Discord webhooks?

Fortunately, it’s fairly simple to create Discord webhooks. The basic requirements are:

  • Having a Discord account
  • Owning a Discord server or having administrator permissions in one

The first thing you’ll need to do is pick any channel in your Discord server, and click on the little settings icon that appears right to the channel’s name.

discord-webhook-creation

On the screen that follows, click on the “integrations” option on the left menu.

discord-webhook-creation-2

Doing this will land you on the integrations section of your Discord server. As you can see, there is a “Create a webhook” button that allows you to create one on the spot. Click it!

discord-webhook-creation-3

Next, you will be able to create a webhook for the channel of your choice. All you have to do is name your webhook, select the channel, and hit the “Copy Webhook URL” button.

discord-webhook-creation-4

That URL you just created and copied is your new Discord webhook.

You will be able to use that URL in third-party applications to post data to the channel attached to that webhook.

To manage your webhooks or create new ones for other channels, just go to the integrations section again and click the “View webhooks” button. The webhook URLs, by the way, will be kept here as well for whenever you need to copy them.

discord-webhook-creation-5

That’s it! You now know how to make a Discord webhook from scratch. Now, let’s take a look at how to use them.

How to use Discord webhooks?

Discord webhooks are used directly in combination with apps that support outgoing webhooks (so data originating in these can be posted to Discord).

Examples of such apps include form builders like JotForm and Google Forms, chat services like Slack, code hosting platforms like GitHub, and many other services.

If you click on the links above, you will notice that each app tends to have different requirements and methods to implement Discord webhooks. Most will require you to tinker with JSON code in order to get the data (payloads) posted to your Discord channel.

For example, popular form builder JotForm allows you to add your Discord webhook URL through the “Settings” section of your profile.

You will be required to use some code in order to convert the data from JSON to PHP, as well as to select which form responses you want to post to Discord through the webhook.

At this point, you might be wondering if this is the easiest way to automatically post to Discord, given the ins and outs many apps have regarding webhooks.

Taking into account a number of considerations, the answer is probably “no”.

Now, let’s take a look at the reasons why, and also at more user-friendly ways to automate Discord messages.

Discord auto poster: Plan, post, and schedule Discord messages with Integromat

There are multiple reasons why webhooks are not the most convenient method to automate posting to Discord.

First and foremost, webhooks may prove technically challenging for many users without coding knowledge.

Second, not every app out there supports the use of webhooks, rendering them useless in many situations.

Third, you can’t schedule or adjust the timing of publications made by a webhook. The moment the data appears, the webhook will post it, in disregard of it’s the best timing or not.

Want to automatically post tweets to Discord? Or perhaps send a welcome message each time someone joins your server? What about posting a daily update about something once a day, every day?

All of this is easily attainable with Integromat.

discord-automation

Our platform features 24 modules to automate all-things Discord, including the “Post a message” and “Post a message with a file” modules, which allow you to post virtually anything to Discord automatically.

Say, for example, that you wish to post tweets - yours, or somebody else’s - to Discord. All you need to do is set up a simple Integromat scenario, and voilá.

We show how to do this in the following use case. The resulting Twitter - Discord integration is also available as a template, which means you can implement it in minutes.


Another example: Let’s imagine that you want to share news about one or more Steam games to a channel on your server.

Instead of dragging yourself through the game’s Steam page every once in a while, you could tell Integromat to watch out for news about a game, and then post a message whenever the news arrives (by using the “Post a message” Discord module).

These are just two examples of what you can do with Integromat and Discord, and certainly not where the possibilities end. Using Integromat, you can:

  • Post Slack messages to Discord
  • Share Twitch clips to Discord channels
  • Get email attachments shared to a Discord channel
  • Post articles (and article links) from your WordPress blogs
  • Create webhooks for each of your new or existing Discord channels
  • Post to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn straight from Discord
  • Create and post GIFs to Discord using Giphy

And more. Some of the use cases above are available as Integromat templates, but in case they aren’t you can always create Discord integrations to get what you need.

The best part of it all? You won’t ever have to worry about dealing with strange requirements and fuzzy code, not a single time.

Conclusion

All things considered, Discord webhooks are useful but limited.

If you want to solve a specific situation where you need some content posted right away and don’t mind getting your hands dirty with code, they will prove handy.

However, this is rarely the case for most users, and that is why Integromat makes a lot more sense.

Our platform makes it easy to post content originating in hundreds of different apps. In addition, it allows for two-way synchronization between Discord and other apps as well (Discord webhooks won’t do that for you).

Whether it’s getting the latest tweets from Epic Games, posting relevant content from trusted sources, or getting notified when Discord goes down, Integromat will help you make real progress in your Discord automation efforts.

Happy automating!

Introduction

When you have critical websites you’ll want to know when they are experiencing any issues so you can fix them before there’s an impact on your users. One way to receive notifications is to set up alerts through a text-based chat system.

Discord is a hosted chat system similar to Slack. With Discord, you can set up a free messaging system that lets you communicate with text messages, images, audio, and video. While it offers premium features, you can sign up for free, and it has clients available for Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, and iOS.

In this tutorial, you will configure your own Discord server, create a Discord webhook, write a Bash script that will check the status of a list of websites, and test notifications from your server to your Discord channel.

Prerequisites

Before you begin this guide you’ll need the following:

Step 1 — Setting Up Your Discord Webhook

Once you have opened your Discord account you can create your own private Discord server.

First, log in to your Discord account in your browser or launch your Discord app and click on the Create a server button.

Create server or Join server Discord

Then pick a name for your server and click on the Create a server button.

Next, you will configure your Discord webhook. The webhooks are unique URLs that you can use to link services together. Discord’s webhooks allow you to automate your messages and send data updates to your Discord text channels.

In this tutorial, you will send a notification to your webhook when a specific service on your server goes down, and Discord will make sure that you get those messages on your channel.

To create a webhook you have to first click on your channel and then click on the Edit Channel button right next to your channel’s name.

Channel settings Discord

Then click on the Webhooks tab and click the Create Webhook button.

Create Webhook Button Discord

After that, pick a name for your webhook, in this tutorial we’ll use as this is what our Bash script will do—alert us in the case that one of our websites goes down.

Copy your webhook URL and save it for later. Finally, click the Save button.

Create webhook Discord

You now have your Discord account, server, and webhook. You can now move on to create a test file for your script to monitor.

Step 2 — Creating a Test File (Optional)

If you don’t have your own website to test already, complete this step to add a test file to check how your monitoring script will work. Make sure to run these commands on your apache-server.

First, create the test file with the following command:

Add some content to your file, so you can check it’s working:

test

Save and exit the file.

Now navigate to in your browser to make sure you can receive the text in the file.

In the next step, you’ll start to build your monitoring script.

Step 3 — Creating Your Monitoring Script

Now that you’ve configured your webhook, you’ll go ahead and create your Bash script that will check the response code of your websites. In the event that any of the websites returns a status different from , your script will send a request to the Discord webhook so you will receive a notification in your Discord channel.

Note: You could use any other programming language to build a script like this.

First SSH in to your monitor-server that you’re using to run your monitoring script.

Start by creating a file in your home folder. We’ll call the file in this tutorial.

With your favorite text editor open the file:

For the program loader to recognize this executable file as a Bash script, add the following line to the top of the file:

~/check_status.sh

All lines starting with a are a comment. The comments are optional, but having comments in your script will make it easier for other people to understand what the script does:

~/check_status.sh

Next, specify your Discord webhook as a variable. Add the URL you copied earlier for your webhook:

~/check_status.sh

As you’ll possibly use this script to check the status of multiple websites, make a variable called and store the domain names or IP addresses of the websites that you want to monitor. If you’re using the optional test file in this tutorial, make sure to add after your domain name or IP address:

~/check_status.sh

In the case that you are monitoring more than one website, you can add more domain names or IP addresses to the variable and use space as a separator:

~/check_status.sh

Now you’ll want to loop through the list of websites and check their status. To do so add the following loop to your file:

~/check_status.sh

This loop will go through each item in the variable and check the status of the website with the command.

The statement will print out the response status of the command. If the website is running as expected the command will return a response code , meaning that the website is up and running. Otherwise you’ll receive another response code.

Inside the loop, add an statement to check if the response code is or not. If the response code is then this means that the website is running and you wouldn’t need a Discord notification. Add the following conditional block to your file:

~/check_status.sh

If there are any problems with the website then you’ll get a different response code, in this event you’ll want to receive a notification via your Discord webhook.

To send the notification you can use the command to submit a request to the Discord webhook URL.

Add the following request inside your statement:

~/check_status.sh

Now let’s examine the different arguments:

  • : Tells that you want to add an extra header in your request.
  • : Defines the data type the webhook should expect (HTTP JSON).
  • : Specifies that you want to use a as the request method.
  • : Sends the specified JSON data to the Discord Webhook.

This will be the final version of your script:

~/check_status.sh

The script will loop through this list and check the status for each website.

Run the script with the following command to make sure that it works as expected:

After running the script, you will receive the following output in your terminal confirming that your website is running:

Next, you’ll test your Discord notifications.

Step 4 — Testing Your Discord Notifications

Now it’s time to check if your webhooks are working as expected by using the test file.

On the apache-server run the following command to close down access permissions to this file:

Next, return to your monitor-server and run the script:

Move to your Discord app and check your alerts, you’ll receive a :403 error. This shows that you do not have the permissions set correctly and are forbidden from viewing the file.

Now, to test a different error, remove this file entirely from your apache-server:

Next, return to your monitor-server and run the script:

Move to your Discord app and check your alerts, you’ll receive a :404 error. This shows that the file is unavailable.

If you have Discord installed on your phone you’ll receive alerts there as well.

You now have a script that alerts you when your websites are experiencing any issues. Let’s next configure the script to run automatically every five minutes.

Step 5 — Automating the Process

One of the ways to automate the checks is to create a cron job that will run every 5 minutes or so.

First, go back to your monitor-server. Then before you can run the script automatically, you need to sort out your file permissions and make sure that the script is executable, otherwise, it will not run. To make the script executable run:

Run the following to edit your crontab:

Then add the following to the file:

Then save the and your script will then execute every 5 minutes.

Conclusion

In this article, you configured your own Discord webhook and created a script to notify you in case a specific error occurs on your website. Now you can use your favorite programming language and write a more complex bot.

# Webhooks

Webhooks can send messages to a text channel without having to log in as a bot. They can also fetch, edit, and delete their own messages. There are a variety of methods in discord.js to interact with webhooks. In this section, you will learn how to create, fetch, edit, and use webhooks.

# What is a webhook

Webhooks are a utility used to send messages to text channels without needing a Discord application. Webhooks are useful for allowing something to send messages without requiring a Discord application. You can also directly edit or delete messages you sent through the webhook. There are two structures to make use of this functionality: and . is an extended version of a , which allows you to send messages through it without needing a bot client.

TIP

If you would like to read about using webhooks through the API without discord.js, you can read about them hereopen in new window.

# Detecting webhook messages

Bots receive webhook messages in a text channel as usual. You can detect if a webhook sent the message by checking if the is not . In this example, we return if a webhook sent the message.

If you would like to get the webhook object that sent the message, you can use open in new window.

# Fetching webhooks

TIP

Webhook fetching will always make use of collections and Promises. If you do not understand either concept, revise them, and then come back to this section. You can read about collections here, and Promises here and hereopen in new window.

# Fetching all webhooks of a guild

If you would like to get all webhooks of a guild you can use open in new window. This will return a Promise which will resolve into a Collection of s.

# Fetching webhooks of a channel

Webhooks belonging to a channel can be fetched using open in new window. This will return a Promise which will resolve into a Collection of s. A collection will be returned even if the channel contains a single webhook. If you are certain the channel contains a single webhook, you can use open in new window on the Collection to get the webhook.

# Fetching a single webhook

# Using client

You can fetch a specific webhook using its with open in new window. You can obtain the webhook id by looking at its link, the number after is the , and the part after that is the .

# Using the WebhookClient constructor

If you are not using a bot client, you can get a webhook by creating a new instance of and passing the and into the constructor. These credentials do not require you to have a bot application, but it also offers limited information instead of fetching it using an authorized client.

You can create webhooks directly through the Discord client. Go to Server Settings, and you will see an tab.

Integrations tab

If you already have created a webhook, the webhooks tab will look like this; you will need to click the button.

Integrations tab

Once you are there, click on the / button; this will create a webhook. From here, you can edit the channel, the name, and the avatar. Copy the link, the first part is the id, and the second is the token.

# Sending messages

Webhooks, like bots, can send up to 10 embeds per message. They can also send attachments and normal content. The open in new window method used to send to a webhook is very similar to the method used for sending to a text channel. Webhooks can also choose how the username and avatar will appear when they send the message.

For discord webhooks

Hey, welcome to discohookDiscohook! The easiest way to build and send Discord messages with embeds using webhooks. The embeds below explain a bit more, but you're not required to read them. If you're ready, click on the "Clear All" button in the editor to start making your own messages. Discohook has a support server! Feel free to join and ask any questions you may have, or suggest things you'd like to see. There's also a complementary bot, it's completely optional but you may want it.

What's this?

Discohook is a free tool that sends messages with embeds to your Discord server. To do that it uses webhooks, a Discord feature that lets any application send messages to a channel. To send messages, you need a webhook URL, you can get one via the "Integrations" tab in your server's settings. Note that Discohook cannot respond to user interactions, it only sends messages when you tell it to. As such creating an automatic feed or custom commands is not possible with Discohook.

Discord bot

Discohook has a complementary bot, while it's not strictly required to send messages it may be helpful to have it. Below is a small but incomplete overview of what the bot can do for you.

Mentioning users, roles, channels, and using emojis

These things have manual ways, however they're easy to mess up for someone that doesn't know what they're doing. If you don't understand the above link, using Discohook's bot for this is recommended. The relevant commands in the bot are , , , and . Each of those will return formatting which you can copy into the editor to get the appropriate output. To use Discord's default emojis, use its short name wrapped in colons. As an example, ":eyes:" will make the eyes emoji.

Creating reaction roles

You can create reaction roles with the bot using the command, the set-up process is very simple: add a reaction to any existing message in your server, and name the role. Note that while other bots may allow you to configure reaction roles, Discohook's are the only ones we can give support for.

Recover Discohook messages from your server

The bot is capable of turning most message links sent inside your server into Discohook links. Use the command with a message link to move that message from Discord into Discohook.
