Discourse webhook displays private messages


(James) #1

I chose my webhook to only push post event because it covers both new topics made and new posts/replies made.

The issue: it alerts everytime someone sends a private message. I know that private messages are technically a topic but shouldn’t there be a way to block that out or at least only deliver topic replies and creations?

Also, anyone can click to view the private message even if theyre not invited to it :sweat:

It’s not possible to filter pm replies in post event webhooks. But you can do it via a custom plugin.

If you are not an admin and don’t have access to the PM then you can’t view the messages in it.

:thinking: that screenshot looks like Discord to me. Have you thought about using the discourse-chat-integration plugin instead of webhooks? It provides loads of filtering options:
