Webhook alerts on Gunbot – Tutorial

This guide explains how to set up webhooks with TradingView to enable alerts to be sent directly to your Gunbot instance for automated trading. With webhooks, you can receive alerts and execute trades automatically without needing to manually enter orders.


Before setting up the webhooks integration, you’ll need:

– A publicly accessible device running Gunbot on port 443

LibreSSL installed to generate SSL certificate

Webhooks enabled in Gunbot with a unique passphrase

– At least one valid trading pair added in Gunbot

Setting Up Alerts

Configuring TradingView Alerts

When creating alerts in TradingView, the message must follow this format to be properly interpreted:

passphrase exchange order_type pair amount price

The passphrase is what you set in Gunbot’s settings. The exchange, order type, pair, amount, and price define the trade to execute.

In other words: TradingView alerts should use this format:

passphrase exchange order_type pair amount price


passhere binance buy ETH-BTC 7 0.042 Sets a BUY Limit order on Binance for the pair ETH-BTC of 7 and price = 0.042
Order types are “BUY” or “SELL”

passhere binanceFutures short BTC-USDT 3 39400 Places a short on Binance Futures for the pair BTC-USDT – Amount = 3 and price = 39400
Order types are “short”, “long” or “close”

Available Settings

Currently only a small number of settings can be used in TradingView webhook alerts:

TV_GB: Google Authenticator 2FA code if enabled

TV_PROTECTION: Confirmation that trading is enabled if protections are on

These settings are formatted the same as in email alerts.


If you get SSL certificate errors on Windows, install LibreSSL:

  1. Open PowerShell as admin and run: Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process
  2. Run: Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; [Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = 3072; iex((New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadString(‘https://community.chocolatey.org/install.ps1‘))
  3. Install LibreSSL: choco install libressl

Or download the DLL directly from https://sourceforge.net/projects/libressl-3-2-0-for-windows/files/LibreSSL-3.3.3_MinGW_Windows7%28static%29.zip/download and extract to c:/libressl

With webhooks properly configured, Gunbot will automatically execute your TradingView alerts!
