Hi Leilani,

it actually is possible with GoodData Notification API, even though it requires some technical skills. The Notifications API allows a workspace administrator to set up automated notifications that can be emailed, texted, sent to Salesforce Chatter, or to any API that will understand the message payload.

The last option seems to be what you are looking for, you may need to set up a proxy API service that will accept the format used by our notification API and translate it into whatever your target API expects.

The following documentation article provides additional details about the API:

You may also want to check out this blogpost that describes how the notification API can be used to sent notification to a Slack channel:
