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. This allows you to set the Slack channel for Outlyer notifications.

This will look in the form:<RANDOM>/<UUID>

For more details see their documentation:

From an alert, choose to add a new 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.
