Slack Plugin

Send alerts to Slack.

Slack Message

For help, join Gitter chat


Clone the GitHub repo and run:

$ python setup.py install

Or, to install remotely from GitHub run:

$ pip install git+https://github.com/alerta/alerta-contrib.git#subdirectory=plugins/slack

Note: If Alerta is installed in a python virtual environment then plugins need to be installed into the same environment for Alerta to dynamically discover them.


Add slack to the list of enabled PLUGINS in alertad.conf server configuration file and set plugin-specific variables either in the server configuration file or as environment variables.

PLUGINS = ['slack']

To configure the Slack plugin start by setting up an incoming webhook integration for your Slack channel and adding the following configuration settings to alertad.conf:

SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL = 'https://hooks.slack.com/services/T00000000/B00000000/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX'
SLACK_ATTACHMENTS = True  # default=False
SLACK_CHANNEL = '' # if empty then uses channel from incoming webhook configuration
SLACK_CHANNEL_ENV_MAP = { 'Production' : '#alert-prod' } # Default=None (optionnal) Allow to specify a channel on a per-environment basis. SLACK_CHANNEL is used a default value

ICON_EMOJI = '' # default :rocket:
ALERTA_USERNAME = '' # default alerta

The DASHBOARD_URL setting should be configured to link Slack messages to the Alerta console:

DASHBOARD_URL = ''  # default="not set"
