Slack Alert

Setting up Slack

We integrate to allow the sending of alert triggers, updates and resolutions to a Slack channel.

Create a new incoming webhook in Slack. https://my.slack.com/services/new/incoming-webhook/. This allows you to set the Slack channel for Outlyer notifications.

This will look in the form: https://hooks.slack.com/services/T02<RANDOM>/<UUID>

For more details see their documentation: https://api.slack.com/incoming-webhooks

From an alert, choose to add a new webhook action

Create webhook action

Paste the URL into an alert action in Outlyer.

Click the test button and you should receive a message in your slack channel.

You can add further text to the payload if you wish, such as links to your runbooks for alert resolution.
