Hi Rixx,

When i'm testing the script, i'm getting the error below:

root@vmi333784:/zammadnotify# ./
File "./", line 29
headers={"Authorization": f'Bearer {config["zammad"]["token"]}'},
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Do you know how to solve this?

This script requires Python 3.6 and above, you seem to be running on a lower version. You'll have to replace every f-string (a string that starts with f' or f") with an old-style format string or string concatenation.
