AppBeat periodically monitors your online services, web pages & assets. When it detects issue or anomaly it will automatically send you notification.
To send notifications directly to your Slack workspace please follow these simple instructions.
1.) Registering new Slack integration
Please login to your AppBeat account, click "Alerting / Third-Party service integration", click "Add new integration" button and select "Slack".
In new dialog please enter your custom integration name and click "Add AppBeat app" button.
This should open new page where you should login to your Slack workspace, select channel and authorize our app to send monitoring notifications.
Now you can test your newly added webhook by clicking "Test" button. You should receive test notification in your Slack workspace. If everything works you can finish registration by clicking "Add" button.
Your new Slack notification channel is now ready to use by AppBeat. However it is still not associated with any monitoring service. Please read "Using Slack integration" chapter below to see how to do that.
What is monitoring service?
Monitoring service is simply group of periodic checks which all share same notification settings.
If any of checks fails we will first see to which monitoring service it belongs and which notification types does it have. Then we will send notifications to all associated notification types (for example email, SMS, Slack, etc.).
2.) Using Slack integration
Please click "Services & Checks" and double-click on your monitoring service.
In new dialog please select "Notification types", select your Slack integration(s) and finish dialog by clicking "Save" button.
If any check in this service fails, you will now automatically receive Slack notification(s).
You can reuse same notification type and associate it with multiple monitoring services.
