Drupal.org / Slack App

Remix on Glitch

The drupalorg-slack Slack app uses Drupal.org's API to retrieve a number of data points that are relevant to an organization's Drupal Marketplace rank and report it into your Slack workspace. The data points include issue credit count, number of projects supported, and case studies submitted, as well as the marketplace rank itself. It also keeps track of the "high scores" for each of these values.

The functionality is composed of two pieces, the slash command, and an external trigger:

  • The slash command is triggered from within Slack by any user with permission and will result in an ephemeral message sent back to Slack with the response. Only the requesting user can see this response.
  • The external trigger allows for a request from outside of Slack to trigger the app. This is useful for scheduling the app to notify a channel on a regular basis.

Getting Started

  1. Remix on Glitch (easiest for a quick start since Glitch will host your app and provide a URL for Slack to talk directly to; more info on Glitch). Alternatively, and more traditionally, you may clone this repo and get the app running somewhere that it will be accessible on the web.
  2. Copy .env.sample to .env.
  3. Create a new app in the Slack "Your Apps" dashboard.
  4. In your newly created Slack app configuration, Create a slash command via the "Slash Commands" tab in the sidebar and set the request URL to your app: https://your-app-name-here.glitch.me/slack/events
  5. Configure the required environment variables in .env:
    1. SLACK_SIGNING_SECRET: Navigate to the "Basic Information" tab and use the "Signing Secret".
    2. SLACK_BOT_TOKEN: Navidate to the "Install App" tab and use the "Bot User OAuth Access Token" value.
    3. DRUPAL_ORG_NODE_ID: Your organization's node ID from Drupal.org.
  6. Configure the optional environment variables in .env. These values are utilized when the app is triggered from an external source such as a cron or Jenkins job as opposed to a "slash command" from within Slack.
    1. DEFAULT_CHANNEL_ID / SANDBOX_CHANNEL_ID (optional): Populate these values with the Slack channel ID's where you want the app to post notifations to. The easiest way to get these values is to load your Slack workspace in a web browser (as opposed to the Slack app) and grab the channel id's from the address bar.
    2. ORG_TOKEN: A secure value used to validate a request.
  7. Customize default values:
    1. DEBUG_MODE: Setting this value to true results in the SANDBOX_CHANNEL_ID being used instead of the DEFAULT_CHANNEL_ID.
    2. VERBOSE_MODE: Set to true to enable verbose console logging.

Example Trigger Request

To trigger the app from outside of Slack:

  1. Ensure DEFAULT_CHANNEL_ID, SANDBOX_CHANNEL_ID, and ORG_TOKEN are configured as described above.
  2. Make a POST request with your token in the following format:
curl --fail -X POST \
  'https://your-app-name-here.glitch.me/triggers?token=YOUR_ORG_TOKEN_HERE'
