Get alert notifications directly within your Slack workspace

To receive alert notifications from seedata into any Slack channel you choose, you'll need to create a slack app, and provide us with the associated webhook url.

Step 1: Create Slack Application in Slack

You should follow the steps on slack's website to create a new webhook application while logged into your slack account, here: In summary, this will ask you to do the following

  1. Click "Create New App" and then "From Scratch"

  2. Give it a name (we suggest "seedata-io") and select the desired slack workspace, then click "Create app"

  3. In the next page, under "Add features and functionality" select "Incoming Webhooks" then set "Activate Incoming Webhooks" to "On"

  4. Click "Add New Webhook to Workspace" , then select the channel you want.

  5. Copy the webhook

Step 2: Create Slack Integration in

This is where you'll configure to use the slack application you've just used

  1. Click Add New and set TYPE to "Slack"

  2. Give this integration a name and description so you know why you have created it

  3. Select the priorities of events you want to be sent to this Slack channel (more info here; Events)

  4. Paste in the previously copied webhook URL

  5. We provide a default template for the message that will be sent. You're free to change this, by adding any free text you wish along with any variables. There's even a handy "Reset Template" button if you want to restore our default template at any time.

  6. Hit Save

Step 3: Test your new Slack integration

You should now see a new row in the alerts table, with the name and description you previously entered. We provide a facility to send a test message, to prove we are able to deliver messages

  1. Click on the actions button on the right side of the row for your new slack integration [ ... ]

  2. Click on Test and confirm you wish to send a test alert

  3. Witness the majesty of our shiny new alert in your Slack Channel, and go home proud of a good job done well!
