We're going to walk through a really quick 5-step process (if you've already done some of these things it'll be even easier) that will have you posting alerts from SigDev into Slack in a few minutes:

Create a Slack app (if you don't have one already)

You won't get very far without doing this step, but luckily it's very simple, click the underlined text below:

Create a Slack App

Pick a name, choose a workspace to associate your app with (bearing in mind that you'll probably be posting lots of test messages, so you might want to create a channel for sandbox use), and then click Create App. If you've already created one, you can use it too.

Enable Incoming Webhooks

After creating, you'll be redirected to the settings page for your new app (if you are using an existing app, just load its settings via your app's management dashboard).

From here select the Incoming Webhooks feature, and click the Activate Incoming Webhooks toggle to switch it on. You might already have this activated.

Create an Incoming Webhook

Now that Incoming Webhooks are enabled, the settings page should refresh and some extra options will appear. One of those options will be a really helpful button marked Add New Webhook to Workspace, and you should click it.

What this button does is trigger a shortcut version of the installation flow for Slack apps, one that is completely self-contained so that you don't have to actually build any code to generate an Incoming Webhook URL. You should see the following screen:

Slack Webhook Posting

Go ahead and pick a channel that the app will post to, and then click to Authorize your app.

You'll be sent back to your app settings, and you should now see a new entry under the Webhook URLs for Your Workspace section, with a Webhook URL that'll look something like this:

Slack Webhook Example

That URL is your shiny new Incoming Webhook, one that's specific to a single user, and a single channel.

Add your Slack Webhook URL to The TIE

Go back to the SigDev Settings Page . Enter your webhook URL in the Slack Webhook URL Field . Don't forget to click save when you are done.

Adding your slack webhook URL

Select Slack from the notifications tab and click save.
