The Chat Message Sent event is triggered every time one of your app users or account users sends a chat message to a contact or a channel.

Prerequisites

  • Event Subscriptions must be enabled for your user-managed OAuth app with the following configurations:
    • A valid Event Notification Endpoint URL.
