Grafana not sending anything in body of webhook message

HI,

I’ve finally got my system alerting using webhooks but there’s nothing being sent in the body of the message. According to the docs, and post @ Grafana Webhook, there should be a JSON string being sent but on examination of the request object the body contains nothing:
body: {},

We’re using Garfana 4.6 - would an upgrade to 5.3 help?

TIA
Martin

Anybody using Webhooks and come across the same problem? For that matter anyone using Webhooks and get info in the body? Need to get some info as it’s holding me up. I’m using Webhooks to call an endpoint that’ll allow me to run scripts and sound alarms (as there’s no way of doing that!!)

TIA

Well, upgrading to 5.2.4 hasn’t helped. This is the message I get:
