Attention

This is a temporary Slack notification solution as we are working on a full AppOptics Slack integration.

Slack

Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams.

Slack Configuration

Interested in sending your AppOptics Alerts to Slack channels? Setting up a notification is easy. Just visit this link to activate:

https://my.slack.com/services/new/librato

This will take you to a page where you can choose the Slack channel you want to post alerts into.

slack-integration

That’s all you need to do to create an integration in Slack.

slack-setup

The Slack instructions include a URL that you will need in your AppOptics configuration.

AppOptics Configuration

With your Slack information in hand, navigate to the “Notification Services” section of your Organization page. Click on the Slack integration, then on the “Add Configuration” button.

outbound-slack

Add your service a name and add the URL that the Slack integration created for you. That’s it! You can now use Slack with your alerts.

Snapshots in Slack

The Slack service integration also supports snapshots. You can take a snapshot of a chart and post it into a Slack room.

Creating Alerts

After setting up the service you can tie alerts to a service destination. You can read more about creating alerts in the Alerts knowledge base article.
