Hi,

Could you please provide a little more details?
What are you looking to send over the Slack sender, when, and how should it be integrated in Unimus? :)

Thanks!

Sure - We use a generic channel for many different alerts. We would like to control items like the title, user and icon presented in the channel when Unimus sends an alert.

Here is an example for the user: curl -X POST --data-urlencode "payload={\"username\": \"UnimusBot\"}" https://hooks.slack.com/services/xxxxxx ... yyyyyyyyyy

Instead of saying: Incoming-webhook it would say UnimusBot.

For 2.0, we actually already switched to using a fully customizable Slack Bot, instead of Webhooks.
(this was because we are adding full diffs in Config Change Notifications over Slack, which required it)

So as soon as 2.0 rolls out, you will be able to customize any of these things through customizing the Bot which Unimus will use :)

Will that be good enough for your needs?
