Creating a new Transport
All transports are located in
LibreNMS\Alert\Transport and the files
are named after the Transport name. I.e
Discord.php for Discord.
The following functions are required for a new transport to pass the unit tests:
deliverAlert() - This is function called within alerts to invoke the
transport. Here you should do any post processing of the transport
config to get it ready for use.
contact$Transport() - This is named after the transport so for
Discord it would be
contactDiscord(). This is what actually
interacts with the 3rd party API, invokes the mail command or whatever
you want your alert to do.
configTemplate() - This is used to define the form that will accept
the transport config in the webui and then what data should be
validated and how. Validation is done using Laravel validation

A table should be provided to indicate the form values that we ask for and examples. I.e:
