Alternative to Microsoft Teams to send push notifications to your mobile device or browser using PowerShell

When developing software, it’s critical to have a method for tracking significant events and receiving timely notifications.

Although some people use Microsoft Teams to post events from their PowerShell code to a chat/channel via the API, this solution may not be very convenient and may offer limited capabilities for processing the events further.

LogHive provides a simple solution for monitoring important events and receiving real-time alerts on your desktop, phone, and smartwatch. Here are some benefits that are particularly relevant:

  • Precise control over push notifications with different settings per event-group
  • Greater flexibility in organizing events and visualize them in a dashboard
  • Better organization through division into projects and groups
  • Additional description which is searchable
  • Separate events from messages and chats

All you need to do is send an HTTP request from your PowerShell code to our API with any supplementary data, and LogHive handles the rest.

How it works in PowerShell

LogHive provides a simple REST API that you can use to push events and errors to the LogHive service. You can organize your events into projects and groups to keep them organized and easily searchable. Once an event is pushed to LogHive, it is processed and can be viewed in the event stream or dashboard.

With just a few lines of PowerShell-code, you can start pushing events to LogHive and receiving push notifications for your application’s events and errors.

$url = ''
$headers = @{
  'Content-Type' = 'application/json'
  'ApiKey' = 'YourPersonalApiKey'
$data = @{
  project= 'yourprojectname'
  group= 'Payments'
  event= 'Payment received'
  description= 'your-description'
  notify= false
} | ConvertTo-Json
Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $url -Method Post -Headers $headers -Body $data

If an error occurs while creating an event, you will receive an Error object in return.

{'StatusCode': 400, 'Message': 'missing group name'}

You can receive your API-Key here: API-Key.

Receive Push Notifications

To receive push notifications, you simply need to install the LogHive Android app (Playstore) or use LogHive through the web application and allow notifications.

Add an element to your project dashboard

In addition to push notifications, LogHive allows you to display captured events in a dashboard with various elements. With just a few clicks, you can display the events already pushed in the dashboard.

In conclusion, it is essential to have a reliable means of tracking and monitoring events when developing software. LogHive offers an easy-to-use solution that allows users to track important events and receive real-time notifications on multiple devices.

Try LogHive as an alternative to Microsoft Teams.
