Integrate with Slack

With the Slack integration, you can receive notifications from Contrast in your configured Slack instance using a format similar to in-app notifications.

To connect Slack:

  1. In Slack, go to your team's Build settings.

  2. Add a new Incoming webhooks custom integration.

  3. Choose the appropriate channel to which to send messages.

  4. Copy the Webhook URL.

  5. In Contrast, in the user menu, go to Organization settings > Integrations.

  6. Select Connect in the Slack row.

  7. Name the integration and paste the URL.

  8. Selection the application for which you want to enable notifications.

  9. Select Save.

To test the integration:

  1. Go to Organization settings > Notifications.

  2. In the dropdown under Integrations, select the Slack integration name.

  3. For each Subscription (event type) you want to be notified of, click the toggle in the Integrations column.

  4. Cause an event type to occur, and confirm that you get a notification in the Slack channel you specified.

Important

Contrast will disconnect this integration if it fails to return a successful response after 5 attempts.
