Additional URL configuration

Rocket.chat provides functionality to post as another user or to another channel / user, compared to the webhook configuration.
To do this, you can add a sender and/or channel / receiver to the service URL.

rocketchat://shoutrrrUser@your-domain.com/8eGdRzc9r4YYNyvge/2XYQcX9NBwJBKfQnphpebPcnXZcPEi32Nt4NKJfrnbhsbRfX/shoutrrrChannel
             └──────────┘                 └────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘ └─────────────┘
                sender                                                   token                                   channel

rocketchat://shoutrrrUser@your-domain.com/8eGdRzc9r4YYNyvge/2XYQcX9NBwJBKfQnphpebPcnXZcPEi32Nt4NKJfrnbhsbRfX/@shoutrrrReceiver
             └──────────┘                 └────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────┘ └───────────────┘
                sender                                                   token                                    receiver

Passing parameters via code

If you want to, you also have the possibility to pass parameters to the send function.
The following example contains all parameters that are currently supported.

params := (*types.Params)(
    &map[string]string{
        "username": "overwriteUserName",
        "channel": "overwriteChannel",
    },
)

service.Send("this is a message", params)

This will overwrite any options, that you passed via URL.
