Chaos Toolkit Extension for Slack

Build Status

This project is an extension for the Chaos Toolkit to target Slack.


This package requires Python 3.6+

To be used from your experiment, this package must be installed in the Python environment where chaostoolkit already lives.

$ pip install -U chaostoolkit-slack

Slack Token

You can simply generate a legacy token. But you may also create a full Slack App and generate a token from it.


Currently, this extension only provides notification support to send Chaos Toolkit events to Slack channels.

To use this extension, edit your chaostoolkit settings by adding the following payload:

    type: plugin
    module: chaosslack.notification
    token: xoxb-xxxxxxxxxxxx
    channel: general

By default all events will be forwarded to that channel. You may filter only those events you care for:

    type: plugin
    module: chaosslack.notification
    token: xoxb-xxxxxxxxxxxx
    channel: general
      - run-failed
      - run-started

Only sends those two events.


If you wish to contribute more functions to this package, you are more than welcome to do so. Please fork this project, make your changes following the usual PEP 8 code style, add appropriate tests and submit a PR for review.

The Chaos Toolkit projects require all contributors must sign a Developer Certificate of Origin on each commit they would like to merge into the master branch of the repository. Please, make sure you can abide by the rules of the DCO before submitting a PR.


If you wish to develop on this project, make sure to install the development dependencies. But first, create a virtual environment and then install those dependencies.

$ pip install -r requirements-dev.txt -r requirements.txt

Then, point your environment to this directory:

$ pip install -e .

Now, you can edit the files and they will be automatically be seen by your environment, even when running from the chaos command locally.

To run the tests for the project execute the following:

$ pytest
