When an alert rule is triggered, notifications are sent to the contact group that you specified. Before you create a contact group, you must create contacts. When creating a contact, you can specify the mobile phone number and email address of the contact to receive notifications. You can also provide a DingTalk chatbot webhook URL used to automatically send alert notifications.


To add a DingTalk chatbot as a contact, you must obtain its webhook URL first. For more information, see .


  1. On the Contacts tab, click Create Contact in the upper-right corner.
  2. In Create Contact dialog box, edit contact information.
    • To add a contact, enter the Name, Phone Number and Email.
      Note The phone number and email address cannot be blank at the same time. Each phone number or email address must be used for only one contact. You can create a maximum of 100 contacts.
