"send test webhook" failing to Slack

Howdy, I am testing integration of webhooks with Slack (just signed for the payload templates beta) and for some reason, I can't pass the "send test webhook" test on the configuration page. I am sure the Slack URL and shared secret are correct. Should this work as is or is there something needed on the Slack side to make it work? At this point, I just want to see that Slack is getting the test from the Meraki dashboard. I also can't see where I could get some logs on why this is failing. Any ideas?

Thank you, that makes perfect sense. I suppose the payload templates dashboard function (beta) will eliminate the need of the middle ware to convert this... did I get that right?

Yes, Traditionally, the raw JSON webhook message would need to be received by a customer service, which would then map the data to specific fields needed in a 3rd party application. With payload templates, the data is automatically mapped for you.
