  2. From the chat room menu, select Configure Webhooks.
  3. Click on ADD WEBHOOK and fill in the name of the bot that will post the messages. Optionally define avatar.
  4. Click SAVE and copy the Webhook URL of your webhook.

  2. Select the Hangouts Chat project service to configure it.
  3. Check the Active checkbox to turn on the service.
  4. Check the checkboxes corresponding to the GitLab events you want to receive.
